Apple has recruited FreeBSD founder Jordan Hubbard, according to a letter circulating within the FreeBSD community, as reported by Macworld UK. Hubbard will help Apple with its BSD efforts — FreeBSD is used at the core of Mac OS X. “Those who’ve been following my writings about, and enthusiasm for, OS X lately won’t be surprised by my going to work for Apple,” Hubbard said. “OS X has finally managed to achieve the Holy Grail of the Unix community – a powerful Unix core [BSD] combined with a usable desktop, graphical user-interface development tools and real applications, without sacrificing access to Unix’s underlying features.”
