Dear Rob Enderle, I want to thank you, a supposedly independent IT analyst, for the keynote speech you gave recently at the SCO Forum.

Over the past few years, OSNews has grown into a site that many tech fans visit daily for reviews, opinions, and commentaries on a multitude of issues regarding computer operating systems, including Windows, OS X, Linux, BeOS, and others. Eugenia Loli-Queru has been the editor-in-chief of OSNews during much of its growth and has published numerous articles and reviews on operating systems and issues surrounding the graphical user interface ("GUI" or "UI"). Some of these pieces have been controversial, even more so since Eugenia has very strong opinions about things and is not hesitant to state them. Recently, I had the opportunity to conduct an email interview with Eugenia on her technical background, thoughts on various operating systems, and her opinions on the current state of the operating system GUI.
