Jon "maddog" Hall is the Executive Director of Linux International, a vendor organization dedicated to promoting the use of the Linux Operating System. He has been in the computer industry for over a quarter century (somehow that sounds more impressive than just "25 years"), the past 18 years of which have been spent using, programming, and admiring the UNIX Operating System. Currently, Jon works for Compaq Computer Corporation, where he is helping to shape Compaq's strategy with respect to Linux. Previously, Jon was the Department Head of Computer Science at Hartford State Technical College, where his students lovingly (he hopes) gave him the nickname "maddog" as he tried to teach them operating system design, compiler theory, and how to live an honorable life.While working for Digital Equipment Corporation in May of 1994, maddog met Linus Torvalds and was intelligent enough (his critics say maddog was just lucky) to recognize the potential of the Linux Operating System. Linux changed his life, mostly by providing him with 22-hour workdays. Since maddog has started working with Linux, however, he has also started meeting more girls (in particular his two godchildren). You can usually find Jon speaking at various Linux conferences and events (maddog just barks), and he has also been known to travel long distances to speak to local Linux user groups." Nicholas D. Wells manages the documentation, training, and Web site for Caldera. Nick has contributed to NetWare titles for Sybex and the Network Professionals Association newsletter and has written extensively on NetWare security. Before joining Caldera, Nick was a technical writer and editor at Novell and was part of the Corsair team, which began to create a new Linux-based desktop operating system. Before joining Novell as a writer, Nick developed educational software and small business applications for ten years.
