Original OSNews Interviews Today we feature an in-depth interview with three members of FreeBSD's Core (Wes Peters, Greg Lehey and M. Warner Losh) and also a major FreeBSD developer (Scott Long). It is a long read, but we touch a number of hot issues, from the Java port to corporate backing, the Linux competition, the 5.x branch and how it stacks up against the other Unices, UFS2, the possible XFree86 fork, SCO and its Unix IP situation, even re-unification of the BSDs. If you are into (any) Unix, this interview is a must read.

I've run FreeBSD 5.0 since it was released. I've had no problems at all with it. In fact I'd say FreeBSD's unstable is considerably more stable than any Linux stable distribution I've ever run.

Also FreeBSD 5.0 is NOT SLOW, as long as you stick with the Release Engineering branch instead of current, all of the debug code is disabled. In addition, you can disable the debug code in Current by changing some options in the kernel config file.

I've been using FreeBSD since FreeBSD 4.3 and I've been very impressed with every release.

Keep up the good work team.

I couldn't imagine using anything else on a production grade server.
