Interview with Gael Duval of Mandriva
TuxJournal.net writes "Well... I'm 32 years old, and it's been nearly 7 years since I launched the first Mandrake Linux distribution - so my professional life has been totally focusing on Mandrkesoft/Mandriva for 7 years! I started as a technical director for the distribution, then I retired a bit in 2000/2001 by just focusing on our community website. Then I started to manage all the communication of Mandriva. And it's possible that I will soon stop that and focus on something else. At the same time, I always had a look at our products, sent suggestions, launched new projects such as the redesign of our desktop and the MandrakeMove concept, our very own liveCD. My spare time mostly consists of spending time with my wife and my little daughter, who was born 4 months ago! I also spend a little time recording music, which was my big hobby for years."
