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.

Dink?

That's probably partially true -- but I'm a Free/OpenBSD zealot, and I think GL and TdR are both dinks. Technically very sharp, but dinks. Case in point:

GH's very first words in the entire article: "It's interesting that this is your first question: I would have considered it relatively uninteresting."


It's interesting that you use "dink": I would have considered it a relatively unknown word, as I can't translate it via babelfish and you probably don't relate to "double income, no kids". ;)

As I don't know its exact definition, I can't comment on it. :-)

Fun aside. Perhaps I worked with too many dinks (I studied physics ;) in the past, that I consider it appropriate style. ;) ;) ;)

Marc
