"That's how he got into writing 'Cooking with Linux.' Linux Journal listed upcoming themes for their publication and the one scheduled for September of 1999 was 'Cooking With Linux,' but as the hour approached the idea for what that edition would actually look like had not really solidified, so Marcel offered his own suggestion, a mix of both the way he likes to live and the way he likes to compute, a la carte. The wine, he loves, but if there was a schtik that went well with single malt scotch he could have just as easily gone with that, too."
"He and Sally have their own consulting company called Salmar. The 'Sal' is for Sally, and the 'Mar' is for Marcel, just like Debian which is named after its creator, Ian Murdock and his wife, Deb. (Eck, on top of all the candy corn all this sweetness is starting to make me a little sick.) In the interest of serving Salmar's customers better by staying on top of the industry, Gagne, upon realizing there was a Corel representative in his neighborhood, sought him out regarding the Netwinder."
"Interested in learning more, he realized nobody had reviewed it, so he called Linux Journal to discuss it. They were amazed; nobody seemed to be able to get their hands on a copy. His review elicited significant response, and the relationship was born. Now Gagne writes two regular columns for LinuxJournal, one for SysAdmins Magazine, and individual articles here and there on Linux and on system administration."
