Original OSNews Interviews Matt Dillon, not the famous actor but the kernel/VM FreeBSD hacker also well known for writting the Dice C compiler for the Amiga, is here with us today for an in-depth interview about everything regarding FreeBSD 5.0. This is the OS that all the techie people are waiting for and presenting it as the most advanced, technically-speaking, free OS of today. Additionally, we also include two mini interviews with Theo de Raadt, the OpenBSD founder, and Jun-ichiro "itojun" Hagino from the NetBSD Core Team.

FreeBSD feels good

I have to agree, great article. The future is bright... Its odd though. If I observe myself now I find that I have a much stronger emotional bondage towards my old Pentium 90 running FreeBSD than my Athlon 1.4 running Win2k. I mean, both are good OSes, but FreeBSD feels just better. You know whats happening on the system. You can play around with networks like an artist can with his brush. Not to mention that it doesn't matter much whether you sit at the machine or are ssh'ing in... Mmmm FreeBSD. Love it ;)
