A Loopy Non-Interview With Linux Advocate Marcel Gagné

This week, Roblimo again takes a virtual trip up to the Great White North, that would be Canada for the benefit of the NSA and those of you taking notes at home, and has way too much fun hanging out with Linux advocate Marcel Gagné.

The FOSS Force Video Interview

Marcel Gagne

Last week we chatted with a Canadian. So this week it’s only fitting that we talk with… another Canadian. This time, it’s author Marcel Gagné, who wrote a book titled Moving to Linux: Kiss the Blue Screen of Death Goodbye! way back in 2001, and has written a column called Cooking with Linux for Linux Journal for a number of years, plus lots and lots of other articles and a bunch of other books over the years. And now, Cooking with Linux is a Web video series. Hence, our video interview. Or, rather, non-interview; just a couple of guys talking about this and that in the wake of the recent U.S. presidential campaign.
