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.

"Why hasn't someone made a "distro" of FreeBSD in the same vein as RedHat, Gentoo, etc?"

Hey, distro exists, they are called freebsd netbsd openbsd darwin etc......

On other side I can assure you that Debian has no distro. It is an integrated system, not only a kernel ;-)
