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.

Debian GNU/NetBSD
by Dubhthach on Tue 29th Apr 2003 16:08 UTC

Slashdot got a story up about Debian GNU/NetBSD running on a sparc, just went through the Debian page seems they also got a project involving FreeBSD, it uses the kernel, libc and a number of kernel related bits and then the rest of the Debian system.

What i'd find interesting would be if somebody took the FreeBSD system and swapped in the Linux kernel, (yeah i know we got gentoo for a ports based system)
be interesting to compare a Linux system using glibc and one using FreeBSD libc
