We all just wanted to make a kernel that would work for us, and for others, to get their real tasks done. That is still what we do today, and will be doing tomorrow.

Linux Foundation fellow Greg Kroah-Hartman is a developer who oversees stable Linux kernel releases.

In an interview, Greg Kroah-Hartman talks about the early goals Linux creators had for the operating system, challenges and the development process, progress of Rust integration, and more.

"We constantly discuss how our current process is going and what can be done to make it better, making lots of small changes over the years that at the time do not seem like a lot, but over the long-run have helped out immensely," Kroah-Hartman says.
