This is a very special episode of a 45 minute full interview with someone who worked on BSD and remains actively involved in FreeBSD as well.Dr. Marshall Kirk McKusick is a computer scientist, known for his  extensive work on BSD UNIX, from the 1980s to FreeBSD in the present  day.Questions*What do you feel when you look back on the history of BSD and what it became today including FreeBSD?* Did You get involved eventually with FreeBSD after BSD ceased to exist because you felt FreeBSD could be the proper continuation of the BSD flag so to say?* Text editor of your choice, Which one are you using?*What do you think of the ZFS file system?*If BSD was not frozen up for 3 long years during the AT&T Lawsuit period which allowed Linux to get a head start.. Would BSD be what Linux is today?* Linus Torvalds wrote an article back in 2004 about the prediction of the death of BSD, How much of Linus’ prediction has come true?* Kirk’s comments on my statement regarding the Linux Foundation receiving a lot of money through major corporations as Gold and Platinum sponsors (Microsoft, etc.) which is kind of a takeover is already happening in place steering its focus towards what these company’s have in their interests while the FreeBSD Foundation receiving very little money compared to the Linux Foundation while still the FreeBSD Foundation is doing an impressive job with the much smaller amount they are getting.* Did You ever miss the chance you were given to go and work for Sun Microsystems?More info:https://www.mckusick.com https://tsr-podcast.com
