Last week Jeremy White, the CEO of CodeWeavers and Andrew Eikum, a Wine Developer at CodeWeavers who focuses the majority of his work time on Proton joined Forbes’s Jason Evangelho on his Podcast, Linux For Everyone.
Linux for Everyone is a podcast about the thrilling world of desktop Linux, open source software and the community creating it. For beginners and veterans alike! Hosted by Forbes's Jason Evangelho.
Jeremy and Andrew discuss the history of Wine, the history of CodeWeavers and how our collaboration with Valve on Proton started. And that’s not all, folks. There’s more, but you’ll have to listen to the podcast (thanks marketing). Perhaps we discuss what we’re working on now, or our hopes and dreams for the future or how we think Linux fits in today’s world. You just never know. So go ahead and tune in here for our debut on episode #9.
It all started with a Tweet. A special thanks to Jason Evangelho for recognizing our work with Valve and Linux gaming and reading his Twitter feed. And thanks to a Twitter (you know who you are, please reach out to us so we can send you some super sweet swag) user for recognizing the impact CodeWeavers and Wine have had in making gaming on Linux what it is today and bringing it to Jason’s attention. Without both of you, this interview would not have been possible.
