 Interview with Release Engineer Scott Long

Good article for anyone, not just BSD supporters. Its not as controversal as the pull quote might make you think.

"I always stress the importance of the academic environment that BSD came from and the fact that it has nearly 30 years of history behind it. You simply cannot get that wealth of engineering knowledge from Linux. Several of the original key players in BSD from the 70's and 80's still participate actively in FreeBSD development, and again there simply is no substitute that in other projects. In my personal opinion, FreeBSD really is a great base for learning the principles of computer science and engineering."
