(Other stories by Dale Dougherty)
"Dale Dougherty, publisher of the O'Reilly Network, interviewed Matt Welsh, one of the founders of the Linux Documentation Project and an O'Reilly author of Running Linux. Dale talked to Matt about the project and current work he's doing with Java under Linux."
"Matt Welsh: I started with Linux back in about 1992 when, much to the amusement of my friends, I went out and bought a new hard drive and tried to install what was really the only Linux distribution that you could call serious at the time, something called MCC Interim. It came on three or four floppy disks."
"Dougherty: So, how did the Linux Documentation Project evolve?
"Welsh: This was basically the result of myself and Lars Wirzenius and Michael K. Johnson -- I guess Michael's now at Redhat and I don't know exactly what Lars is doing these days -- getting together and saying we wanted to produce printed documentation for Linux, so we wanted to write manuals."
