XYZ Computing has interviewed Martin F. Krafft, Author of the book “The Debian System”
The 4-page interview is found here
I also would like for companies to follow the trend and help Debian meet their needs, rather than waiting for us to do so by ourselves. The possibilities are endless, but the two most common ways are either to employ developers to work on specific parts of the distribution, or by contributing funds together with wishlists, and letting us find the right people for the jobs and supervise their progress. If you are interested in this, feel free to contact me any time.
