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.

Yeah -- I have to say that we've put a lot of effort into the code, and a lot less into the documentation so far, as 6.x is still a new thing. One of the concerns here is actually figuring out how to target status documents -- most of the status information is targetted at people actively involved in or following development, with less frequent information as part of the bi-monthly developer status reports. I'll try to take a pass through the SMPng web page and update it in the next few weeks, so that people sitting somewhere between "tracking CVS" and "tracking releases" can follow things better.

Thanks for your comments!
