"We got a chance to snag some of [MySQL developer] Michael "Monty"
Widenius' time to do an interview for
the Irish Linux Users' Group.
If you want to know more about what's going into the next
MySQL release you just have got to read this.
From the interview:
"Michael Widenius is best known as "Monty" of MySQL fame. We
found him busy working on new features for MySQL and asked a few
"What editor do you use?"
"XEmacs; I started with vi over 300 baud lines to the university
but quickly changed to use Emacs when I got an Unix computer of my
own. I switched to XEmacs when it come out as I found it much
easier to get friends to use this, thanks to the menu system, than
with old Emacs."
"Do you use revision control systems of some kind, and have
you any serious thoughts on the matter?"
"I use CVS with MySQL but have never got a real good feeling
with it. It also doesn't scale that well with many developers that
works on the same piece of code, where every release have to be
stable. We plan to switch to Bitkeeper or Aegis really soon."
