Interview with Stormy Peters of The GNOME Foundation

Filed under
Interviews

In this interview I chat with Stormy Peters about GNOME, Ubuntu and more. I had the opportunity to ask Stormy for an interview during a brief conversation at OSCON earlier this year. Stormy like most people at OSCON had a pretty full schedule and wasn't able to participate in this impromptu request. However, I did ask if I could send her a few questions for an interview to be published on this blog and I am really glad she agreed. Below are Stormy's answers. So without further delay --

Introducing Stormy Peters. Stormy Thank you so much for taking time to answer my questions and let people know more about the GNOME Foundation and Project.

Stormy Peters: My name is Stormy Peters. I’ve been the Executive Director of the GNOME Foundation for a little over two years now. My job is to make sure that the GNOME Foundation is successful in its mission to provide a free desktop accessible to everyone regardless of finances, physical ability or language they speak. We do that by supporting the GNOME project and developers.
I work with our downstream partners, our advisory board members, our marketing team, ... I work on fundraising, outreach, etc.

AG: How long have you been involved with Free and Open Source Software? What was your first distribution, when and why?

Public sector organisations make a soft target for fraudsters because budget and resource shortages frequently leave hospitals short-changed when it comes to security basics like regular software patching," said Tony Rowan, Chief Security Consultant at SentinelOne. "The results highlight the fact that old school AV technology is powerless to halt virulent, mutating forms of malware like ransomware and a new more dynamic approach to endpoint protection is needed.

10 reasons to use Cinnamon as your Linux desktop environment

Recently I installed Fedora 25, and found that the current version of KDE Plasma was unstable for me; it crashed several times a day before I decided to try to try something different. After installing a number of alternative desktops and trying them all for a couple hours each, I finally settled on using Cinnamon until Plasma is patched and stable. Here's what I found. Read more
