Interview With DragonFly BSD's Matthew Dillon
In a very interesting interview, DragonFly BSD creator Matthew Dillon talks about today's 1.10 release, as well as the project as a whole. Designed to be a "fully cross-machine coherent and transparent cluster OS capable of migrating processes (and thus the work load) on the fly", the next big development effort will be on a highly available clustering filesystem. In an entertaining look into the past, the interviewer found a usenet posting from 1994 in which Dillon said he preferred Linux over BSD, and called BSD "well, stuffy". Dillon laughed and said, "I am rather amused that I made the observation of the stuffiness of the BSD projects way back then. It turned out to be one of my chief complaints about those projects over the years."
