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.

Good article, but OSNews needs an editor

That was an excellent interview. I had no idea FreeBSD's vision reached so far in to the future. (Process migration? Was he kidding? I've heard people say Linux is the "Microsoft-killer"; If Matt Dillon was serious, Linux better hurry up, cause there's not going to be much left of Microsoft to kill once *BSD gets through with it.) However, the article was badly marred by flaws that any copy editor would have spotted. The acronyms that weren't expanded. The atrocious spelling. And the grammar, my God. It's a good thing Strunk & White are dead, because this would have killed them. I don't know about you, but I spent a while trying to figure out what exactly had been "seized" in the following sentence: <ol> After the open source bubble bursted recently, a lot of companies seized support and stoped contributing code to both Linux or BSD. </ol> (If you can't figure the puzzle out, here's a hint: nothing was "seized"). --Ben
