Coder Stories #1: An Interview With Gaël Duval

For our very first Coder Stories event, we welcomed Gaël Duval. As the creator of the Linux distribution Mandrake in 1998, which achieved more than 15% of the market share of Linux distributions, he is one of the pioneers of Linux desktop evangelization. He was also involved in the virtual desktop platform Ulteo and, in 2017, created the /e/ mobile operating system, a privacy-focused yet user-friendly fork of Android.

In this filmed interview, he tells us more about how he discovered Unix and Linux, and how he ended up creating Mandrake, one of the first distributions to feature a graphical interface by default. He also discusses why and how he created the /e/ mobile operating system.
