    Spotlight on linuzappz

Date: 2005-05-19
Current Project(s): PCSX2
Location: Argentina

Today we focus our spotlight on the PCSX2 developer linuzappz. It has been over two years since the last time we interviewed linuzappz who at the time was our first spotlight here at EmuFanatics. Over the past two years a lot has changes with PCSX2 and it's development has grown leaps and bounds. linuzappz is a wondeful developer who has done a lot for PCSX2 and I personally looking forward to seeing how much it has developed over the next two years.

A : It's pretty advanced i think, i like the fact that there are so many open source projects around

Q : What do you think about the current state of the NextGen scene?

A : No, life takes too much time, i can barely code for pcsx2

Q : Does the amount of lame request ever make you second guess what you are currently doing?
A : At first yes, but i don't care anymore

Q : What is the lamest request you have every received?
