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.

Linux and Java

It is interesting to me that I have seen something like the following a thousand time:

"Linux and Java: The killer combo"

Mandrake doesn't let you install it by default and Redhat doesn't either. For something that goes great together, you would think you could install it from the get go.

I heard Gentoo does a great job with Java though. ; )
