Original OSNews Interviews Today we feature a very interesting interview with well known *BSD hacker Matthew Dillon over his latest project, DragonFly BSD (also known for his Linux kernel contributions, Amiga C compiler hacking back in the day and the Backplane distributed database). Matthew discusses DragonFly's status, goals, the overall BSD platform, innovation, and more. Update: Added one more question at the end of the Q&A.

The jerkyness I spoke of ages ago when this story first came up was fixed today. Matt found some issues in kern_fork.h and a couple other files that was causing newly forked processes to have realtime priority until they were rescheduled. I've just rebuilt (for the second time today) and the laggyness that I expereinced before is now gone.

All is well with the world. ;-)
