HPR Correspondents bring you Interviews from interesting people and projects



FOSDEM is a two-day event organised by volunteers to promote the widespread use of open source software. Videos of the talks refered to in this show are made available on their website.



Listen to the interview with Bernhard Rosenkränzer


We are a 100% community-driven association that believes in the values of free software & collaboration. We fight to protect these values and promote solutions anyone can use, change and distribute. OpenMandriva believes in creating, improving, promoting and distributing free software in general, and its projects in particular. We also crave for promoting free exchange of knowledge and equality of opportunity in software access and development, as well as in education, science and research. Our products are developed with passion by the community and aim to be flexible in use by all.

OpenMandriva represents the paradigm: from community to community, with passion, fun and dedication.



Listen to the interview with Anne Nicolas


Mageia is a GNU/Linux-based, Free Software operating system. It is a community project, supported by a nonprofit organisation of elected contributors. Our mission: to build great tools for people.



Listen to the interview with Jonathan Riddell


KDE is an international team co-operating on development and distribution of Free, Open Source Software for desktop and portable computing. Our community has developed a wide variety of applications for communication, work, education and entertainment. We have a strong focus on finding innovative solutions to old and new problems, creating a vibrant, open atmosphere for experimentation.



Listen to the interview with David Bremner


The Debian Project is an association of individuals who have made common cause to create a free operating system. This operating system that we have created is called Debian.



Listen to the interview with Johan De W.


Puppet Labs is the leader in IT automation. Our software helps sysadmins automate configuration and management of machines and the software running on them. With our software, businesses can make rapid, repeatable changes and automatically enforce the consistency of systems and devices, across physical and virtual machines, on prem or in the cloud.



Listen to the interview with Jan-Christoph Borchardt


Access, Sync and Share your data, under your control! ownCloud provides access to your data through a web interface or WebDAV while providing a platform to view, sync and share across devices easily, all under your control. ownCloud's open architecture is extensible via a simple but powerful API for applications and plugins and works with any storage.



Listen to the interview with Jason Robinson


diaspora* is a true network, with no central base. There are servers (called "pods") all over the world, each containing the data of those users who have chosen to register with it. These pods communicate with each other seamlessly, so that you can register with any pod and communicate freely with your contacts, wherever they are on the network.
