Is this an "advertorial"?

It would be nice to have some info about the article author. It doesn't really read as an "interview", but as a piece of marketing. I can see a link to distrowatch under the name, but that doesn't really tell me much.
I don't mind "sponsored" articles, if this was the case, but it would be better if it was labelled as such.
It may be that the questions were edited by a PR person - so that the interviewee was able to select the questions... so I'm not throwing up my hands in horror about the dropping of editorial standards or anything. However, I think that this might be an issue to watch out for in the future.
