The world according to Knoppix creator Klaus Knopper
KLAUS KNOPPER IN INTERVIEW
Klaus Knopper still has big ideas for the little distro that has spawned many derivatives and changed the way we think of live Linux. I asked Klaus about the past, present, and future of Knoppix.
LM So what do you do when you’re not working on Knoppix? And what were you doing before all this started? KK I graduated as an electrical engineer from the University of Kaiserslautern, Germany, and I have worked in Unix system administration and system software programming since I left school. While I was in school, I was already working as an independent consultant. I worked as a teacher, software developer, and system administrator, and, apart from the administration part, which I don’t do anymore, this hasn’t changed much. In addition to my consulting work and the several software projects I’m involved in, I currently teach informatics – basics and Linux software development – at the University of Applied Sciences at Zweibrücken.
