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.

Lehey exhibits all the worst things I have heardabout the BSD culture: he's snobby and argumentative and can't stop promoting himself (see the plugs for his books). But the other guy, Warner, seems to have his head on straight and really know what he's talking about. I say promote the latter and give the former the boot.
