"...DDJ: What's the main difference between BSD
"WL: The strong central source repository. You
know what you're building. With Linux, "You need this, and you
need this, and get this somewhere else, and today we just
discovered that you need these twelve patches." There's no way to
keep up with that. It's crazy-making."
"With the BSDs, you synchronize to the sources, "make world" or
"make build", and you know exactly what's running on your machine.
From a security point of view, that's good."
