Jordan Hubbard Gives Last Intervew For Apple 122

acaben writes "MacSlash has posted what Jordan Hubbard says will be his last interview for Apple. Apple's Engineering Manager for the BSD Technology Group talks about the new BSDPorts initiative, his thoughts on working for Apple and Apple's Open Source strategy, and how Mac users new to Open Source can get involved and contribute to the community. He also gets delightfully geeky in comparing the differences between Darwin's VM envirnoment and FreeBSD's and explains that Darwin was built with things like working with Final Cut Pro in mind."

  • And to think, just yesterday Macslash was saying the interview would likely never air. (so to speak)

    Geez. No offense to any of you, but wasn't it just up until last year when Apple products were only used by designers and retards? Hell, you can't even go for a beer with any OBSD boys without a few Macs pop out of their case onto the table.

    I know this is just a rant, but someone's got to comment on Ms. Feiss.... I'll leave that for you. /rant
    • Fortunately OpenBSD keeps up a good PPC port, and using openbsd on an Ibook or Ti-book is immensely satisfying.

      I am running OpenBSD on a 2 GB partition on my Ibook's HD, next to Classic and OS X, and it works like a charm.

      Now, can you blame a fashion concious geek for rather sporting a beautiful portable computer with the most secure OS ever next to the most usable Unix ever?

    Hello, Is there going to be clustering in some of the next builds? I would love to see OS X be able to cluster with any other mac on my lan. Can you imagine the possibilities?

    JH: I'm not involved with any of that, so I really can't comment.

    So in other words: Don't imagine a beowolf cluster of these things!

    don't geeks go in for, ah, technical details?

    Where was the technical detail in saying "Darwin's VM system has to take into account different memory usage patterns"?

    (I enjoyed the article, I guess, but "geeky"?)

  • "Intervew" in the headline. Sheesh.
