Jonathan Schwartz at OS Con 2005
Saturday, April 15, 2006

I just listened to Jonathan Schwartz being interviewed at OS Con 2005. There was what sounded to me like some initial hostility but Schwartz held his own and did a remarkable job. My favorite bit occurs towards the end when the interviewer is asking about why someone would use Open Office rather than some other office productivity package. Schwartz asks the interviewer if he'd ever used Open Office and the interviewer replies:

Yes and I found it to be somewhat slow and buggy and I think that people would rather pay for software that is ... slow and buggy in different ways.

Everyone started laughing!
