[ Thanks to Fernando Correa for this link. ]

[ Q&A with Trae McCombs, of Linux.com and Themes.org - LT ed. ] "OLinux: How was themes .org created? Who was the group and what were the ideas that guided themes.org start? How do you explain the fast growth of themes.org? Show us some brief facts/work/people that contributed to this extreme progress? When and why did you leave it?

Trae McCombs: Well, I started _THEMES.ORG_ (heh, make noted Mr. Editor :) sometime in 97, and it basically grew, with the help of tons of volunteers, to be this huge beast it is today. I guess you can say I was the Grandfather of themes for Linux, because up till I started releasing my themes, most were just giving out thier .steprc (Most used AfterStep back then), and not giving out the whole thing. Thats when I started x.unicom.net and it grew pretty big so I got themes.org domain and we just blossomed from there."

"OLinux: What are your responsibilities at Linux.com? Do you have any other jobs? How did you become Linux.com'webmaster?

Trae McCombs: Well, My job is to make sure that things flow at Linux.com. I was hired I guess because I could work with Volunteers from the community, and with the small budget we had in the beginning, its a good thing. The main reason I was hired is because of the successful job I had with Themes.org."
