Linux UK: Interview with Alan Cox

Feb 06, 1999, 20:29 (3 Talkback[s])

"Wannabe kernel hackers...here is your inspiration..."

"I'd always wanted a Unix system but even Minix was out of my price range. I'd spent some time adding unixlike stuff to the Amiga I had but wasnt bold enough to write an entire new OS. When Linux 0.11 & 386BSD were announced I ordered a 386 box."

"How much time on average a day do you spend hacking?"

"That varies - normally 8-9 hours a day but sometimes something is almost working, and you've nearly pinned down the bug and then its 6am."
