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.

support for sym53c416

I have scanner and scsi adapter for it.
But i couldn't find driver for my scsi(sym53c416) in FreeBSD 4.x and I don't see any support of it in FreeBSD 5.0
So for scanning I forced to use Linux!

Anyway FreeBSD really is the most productive and performant operating system I ever seen. Of course it lacks some features that Linux filesystems have. I don't mean logging, softupdates are better, but it really would be nice to have features like dynamic inode allocation.
