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.

What's old is new again.....

After far too long hacking away on SunOS, and then Solaris with an alcohol sodden drug addled detour into Linux just to see what the penguinistas were up to, getting back to NetBSD and then to FreeBSD was like coming home. Everything just feels good, cvsup is a dream to work, and the inherent _righteousness_ of the OS is a soothing balm upon old wounds laid open and raw by the noxious pox of microsoft. BSD - because sometimes doing it right is worth it than for no other reason than it is the right thing to do.
