In this interview, Matthew discusses his incentive for starting a new BSD project and briefly compares DragonFly to FreeBSD and the other BSD projects.

arstechnica: Firefox is seeing tremendous adoption rates in some parts of the world. In order to perpetuate this growth trend, Mozilla has to continue to find new ways to bring Firefox to a broader audience. Mozilla is tackling this problem from many different angles, but user retention has emerged as a significant priority for the organization's Firefox promotion efforts.
Virtually Vista: This isn't exactly on topic for this blog, since up to this point I've really only talked about getting Windows Vista running in a VM, but sometimes it's nice to talk about something else for a change.
Groklaw: "Linux plays a vital role at Google, and we're strongly committed to supporting the Linux developer community,” said Chris DiBona, Google open source programs manager. “We believe that by becoming an Open Invention Network licensee, we can encourage Linux development and foster innovation in a way that benefits everyone.

Wolvix is a Linux distribution released as an installable liveCD. Originally based on Slax, it is now built upon Slackware and seems to concentrate highly on multimedia. It features XFCE4 and Fluxbox and comes with a large suite of software. Version 1.1.0 was released a few days ago and I decided to give it a little spin this weekend.

Red Herring: With Monday’s news that it will bundle Linux on laptops, Lenovo becomes the second major PC maker to offer the open-source operating system on consumer PCs. But though the move is a boost for the OS, analysts say it’ll be years before desktop Linux can seriously threaten proprietary systems like Windows.

on-disk.com: When Kenneth (aka Wolven) submitted Wolvix Hunter and Cub 1.1.0 to us here at On-Disk.com it was nice to see he had a new release, but I had not expected more than some updates to the existing model. Then, as I did the normal double checking that is done when we prepare to post a new release, I found that this was a serious jump from previous releases based on Slax.

Far from Perfect: As some of you know, I gave up on MS Windows a long time ago. I have a small partition with Vista on it, but I run openSuse Linux more than 90% of the time. I have also moved into the realm of Composited Desktops. I had been running Beryl, but it merged back into Compiz earlier into the year and became Compiz Fusion. A few nights ago openSuse finally released some packages of Compiz Fusion as Compiz 0.5.2 was released.
Vincent Danen: When you need to set up a user account to give a user shell access to the system, the only logical choice of login tool is OpenSSH. With SSH keys, all you need from the user is his SSH public key, and all he needs from you is the IP address or hostname with which to log in. Usually, this is sufficient. In some cases, the user may need to know what his own password is.
Raiden's Realm: Linux Mint, a derivative of Ubuntu which ultimately is a derivative of Debian, is a distribution that seeks to take what Ubuntu did wrong, and do it right. Their goal is to provide the most complete, out of the box experience a user can have in a linux distribution. Is it all talk and no mint, or is it really a distribution you can sink your teeth into? Well, let’s dive in and find out.
