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.

This was excellent reading, not just like someone noted already the detailed answers but the atmosphere and attitude. Professionalism, just pure professionalism is what I smell from this core team of people.

I've been trying to install FreeBSD for a while, but my GF4 card makes it halt during install process very early and I just can't seem to get passed it. I hope this will be solved with 5.1.

I'd love to see half of these questions to be asked to NetBSD and OpenBSD too... very curious to hear how they consider things...
