Ron Minnich: I work at Sandia National Labs in High Performance Computing, an area I have worked in for 21 years. I built my first cluster in 1990, and my first PC cluster in 1994. I've been doing Linux kernel work off and on since 1996, including the first version of v9fs for 2.0.36 in 1998 (v9fs is the Plan 9 file system brought to the Linux kernel). I built my first 1024-node Linux cluster in 2002 -- which at the time was pretty large, and now is small.
SCALE: How did you come to be involved with Open Source Software?
