After talking about Linux and BSD, we will in this post focus on one of the flavours of BSD; FreeBSD, a major Operating System which is used heavily by big companies such as CISCO and Juniper in their networking products. It is powerful enough to push huge amount of internet traffic around the globe. A descendent of the original Berkeley UNIX, FreeBSD continues to evolve to this day, driven by a pool of passionate developers. We have the pleasure to chat with one of the developers of FreeBSD, Mr Loganaden Velvindron, Logan, previously interviewed on this same blog.

Linux !! It’s on the mouth of most IT guys these days – or for long we can say. Some know about them and use them, some only know about them and some simply just ignore its existence. Linux Version 3.18 has been recently released and on the occasion, I decided to have a little chat with somebody close or deep into Linux; Logan – An Official Linux Kernel developer with whom I conducted an interview recently and also talked about some IPv6 issues for my home country, Mauritius. Following is a little of what we talked. Feel free to add your own views and thoughts (even beliefs 😛 ) in the comments.
Open Source systems and the community running behind these have always been something interesting to dive in. As part of paving my path in those communities, I decided to have a word with one of the Open Source Developers in my Home Country namely Loganden Velvindron, Logan; a friend of mine – even if we met in person only once during a workshop on the MariaDB Database Management System. Views expressed in this ‘mini-interview’ represent the views of Logan only. Other mini-interviews similar to this one will follow. 🙂
