Matthew Dillon on BSDTalk

BSDTalk has an interview up with Matthew Dillon, where he talks about his goals with the DragonFly BSD Project, and makes some good points about application availability.

There’s a good pile of other useful interviews at the BSDTalk site; I did not know of any of this before. Browsing through the past interviews, I see mention of FreeBSD-based FreeNAS, a free network attached storage solution, which is also new to me. (Reminds me of the now-defunct DataHive servers…)

Work warning!

Matthew Dillon has issued a warning: HEAD (the bleeding edge code) is currently very stable. Update now, for it’s going to become pretty unstable soon. The base of the cache-coherency management system will be coming in, which he calls “probably the single most complex piece of code that is planned for DragonFly.”
