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.

freebsd is very nice. I got it installed on my home server. Now its dual boot linux, freebsd until I figure out how to set up all the services I have running on the linux side. Probably that would have happen much faster if I could sort out NAT so I can work on it from my other box.
Which firewall people use ? The IPfilter or the default freebsd one? I guess it will have to wait until the end of the semester...

I really like it thought.Thats proper unix.
And yes coming from an rpm distro I loved the ports.
However my favorite command will be "make world"
