Talking with Tom LaStrange of twm

Author: JT Smith

LinuxPlanet has the interview: "For a couple of weeks, I had been trying to locate Tom LaStrange, creator of the twm window manager, in hopes
of combining a talk with him with the review I did of twm a while back. LaStrange seems to be a man who's a bit incredulous about the fuss made over twm. In his first comments to me,
he seemed to think that is was no big deal.

'That poor ugly duckling was written out of selfishness more than anything,' LaStrange said. 'I needed a new
window manager and it turns out other people did, too.' "
