I believe the interview was hashed over quite well 2 or 3 months ago. It seemed familiar, but I saw no date and did not read the whole thing, but I don't think they would have done two so-similar interviews as close together."Ken says that Microsoft is more reliable than Linux and that the field of computer science has reached a zenith."Ken is also promoting his own OS's (Inferno and Plan 9, I believe), at the expense of every other OS, be it unix, linux, or windows variants. He basically thrashed everything he didn't make. I respect what he's done, but Thompson's pretty baked in his old age."He predicts that biology will be the next hot field and research in computer science will (or has) stagnate(d)."Strange. I find more and more people approaching me about new fields of computer science daily. Not to say Biology can't be hot, but comp sci is far from over."comments?"He's a crotchety old man. My Dad, who sold VAXen when they were hot, thinks he's just grumpy and needs more geritol. How old is the coot anyway? I realize he's not that old, but he sure as hell is acting like it. Give him a cane and I bet he'd beat your ass for stepping on his property ;)Rob Nelsonronelson@vt.edu
