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.

Tangent: Mike Smith and Apple
by FUD-Buster on Sat 25th Jun 2005 04:45 UTC


First off, how cool of these guys to take this time out and then to come in here and answer questions. Very much appreciated (as is all the work you do for FreeBSD). And 6.x looks very interesting. I remember getting into this back at 2.1.5 and even then the "philosophy" got me.

Through the years, Mike Smith had helped me tremendously with various scsi/raid issues on the mailing lists. Really great guy who took time to explain how he was using the data I supplied him in my bug reports/troubleshooting. I learned so much just from short interactions with him. He was also incredibly kind and patient.

I saw in the article that he's at Apple. What type of work is he doing there?

Lastly, of those that work at Apple now (JKH, Mike), I'd love to see either of these folks write an article along the lines of "A tour of my OS-X workstation" - love to see what they do for virtual desktops, and what they find are "must haves" as far as little utilities and hacks.
