Interview with Miklós Vajna, Frugalware Linux

Filed under
Interviews

Frugalware Linux is one of those distributions that does not feature often in the news headlines. But those users who take the time give it more than just a passing glance are often surprised to find in Frugalware a clean, fast distribution with a great package manager and a few convenient system administration tools. Loosely modelled on Slackware and incorporating Arch's 'pacman' for managing installed applications, Frugalware Linux is not only a great operating system, it is also an active community project based on open source ideals. We have asked Miklós Vajna, the distribution's founder, a few questions about the history of the project and where it is heading.

DW: When did you start using Linux and why? What distributions did you use before launching Frugalware?

Full Story.
