By his own admission, Matthew Lee would not have been voted most likely to become an executive at a leading software multi-national by his classmates at the trade school where he trained to be a plumber. Years after he first left plumbing to try his hand at networking, Matthew worked his way up the corporate ladder at Comztek and Novell. While based in Johannesburg, he now oversees African operations at the German open source software firm, SUSE. Among many other things, Matthew chats to Andile Masuku about how the open source software movement has cleaned up its act, the extent of OSS adoption on the continent, and why Microsoft might no longer be considered the global OSS community's arch nemesis.
