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.

Re: Lack of Java

I agree, no proper Java support is a significant issue. As it matures (and more to the point, speeds up), Java is really starting to turn into a useful language.

Replace Java with Python? Surely, sir, you jest. I like Python as much as the next guy, but I think Java has a much better programming paradigm.
