Ubuntu Studio: An interview with Project Manager Cory Kontros

Filed under
Interviews

I’ve known about, written about and even participated in the Ubuntu Studio project (in a limited capacity) in the past. After hanging around in the project’s IRC channel for a bit I got to chat with Ubuntu Studio’s Project Manager! I did get Cory Kontros to take a bit of time with me for a quick interview on the status of this upcoming project.

oktyabr: Thanks for taking time out to talk with me… So, what is your background in music creation?

_MMA_: “Music creation”… I’m a trained audio engineer with mostly live sound experience.
oktyabr: And what is your background in linux/ubuntu?

_MMA_: “Linux/ubuntu”… I’ve dabbled with linux for many years but never found a home Until Ubuntu-Warty.

oktyabr: I imagine you have had lots of good questions in IRC since all the press on digg.com, slashdot, etc… What are some of the questions you’ve heard the most, the ones you would consider most important for people to hear the answers to? For example, I liked the one about “how are you dealing with non-free codecs” (overheard in the IRC chat)?

Full Story.
