Original OSNews Interviews One of my popular articles shortly after I joined OSNews in 2001 proved to be "the big *BSD interview" and so it is only appropriate to end my serving at OSNews with a similar theme. Today we are very happy to host a Q&A with well-known FreeBSD developers John Baldwin, Robert Watson and Scott Long. We discuss about FreeBSD 6 and its new features, the competition, TrustedBSD, Darwin etc.

This interview raises my expectations for FreeBSD 6.x considerably.

Let's hope FreeBSD 6.x won't be such a big disappointment like 5.x.

Does anybody know what's the benefit of these countless new security "features"? Will they render buffer overflows ineffective or do they just add more complexity? How do they compare to OpenBSD's exploit mitigation techniques?
