We also speak with Jon "maddog" Hall, often referred to as “the Godfather of Linux”, to get exclusive insights on his history with Linux, some of his contributions to the community, a bit about its evolution, and his thoughts on what we might see with Linux in the coming years, and examine the anatomy of a Linux ransomware attack.
