Original OSNews Interviews The main commercial company behind NetBSD is Wasabi Systems. The company has contributed advances and big chunks of code to the open source project, while they do offer a boxed release of NetBSD. However, their main business for the company is the embedded market and NetBSD is marketed as an embedded OS. Today, we talk to the Vice President of Wasabi Systems, Jay Michaelson.

This was a very nice interview, but a bit short. We want more juicy details! :-) It's great to see original, unique content on OSNews. I'm glad that people are creating real, money-making business models with open source software. It's very encouraging.

His points about Linux and the GPL are valid, especially to some commercial hardware vendors. However, I wonder if NetBSD can really stay competitive with Linux, as its scalability up and down improves at an increasing rate.
