What is MidnightBSD? Why does it exist? What are the project's goals? These are some of the topics John Paul explores in his It's FOSS interview with Lucas Holt, the founder and lead developer of a flavour of BSD which is not often talked about. "It's FOSS: Please explain MidnightBSD in a nutshell. How is it different than other BSDs? Lucas Holt: MidnightBSD is a desktop focused operating system. When it's considered stable, it will provide a full desktop experience. This differs from other efforts such as TrueOS or GhostBSD in that it's not a distro of FreeBSD, but rather a fork. MidnightBSD has its own package manager, mport, as well as unique package cluster software and several features built into user land such as mDNSresponder, libdispatch, and customizations throughout the system."
