Talking with Jim Gettys

Author: JT Smith

"Jim Gettys is a living legend in the Linux and Unix community. He started the original X Window System
which today forms the basis of the Linux and Unix GUI. Today Jim is still active in the community working at
Compaq making Linux and X run on the iPaq. He was also elected to the GNOME Foundation board by
GNOME hackers. Jim Gettys is (as you might expect) an extremely busy man, but I was lucky enough to catch
up with him for a few questions." More at LinuxPower.org.
