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.

I really liked to try FreeBSD, but that harddisk kept timing out. After a reboot, everything works fine, but the more hd access there has been, the more timeouts come. That made the system wholly unusable so I threw it away.
Does anyone know what the problem is here?

I also tried NetBSD, but when I installed too much software I did not trust the 102% disk usage with -5xxx free blocks.
