BSD and Darwin derivatives Free OS pioneer NetBSD marks its fifteenth birthday tomorrow. The first commits were made to the NetBSD source code repository on March 21, 1993. In addition to the robust OS it is, NetBSD code has contributed to countless other projects. Congratulations to NetBSD contributors past and present.

NetBSD: very valuable project/OS

This says it all:

Code from NetBSD has been included in countless other projects, Open Source and otherwise.

I've said this before, but there is a tremendous glut of fantastic OSes and applications in the FOSS world -- both BSD and Linux projects (and others). They compete and feed off one another, which makes for an interesting ongoing relationship.

Looking at the proposed timelines for NetBSD; I have seen the NetBSD/usermode is "pencilled" to the next 5.0 release (scheduled for Q4/2008).

That is a very nice feature that will allow having several virtual NetBSDs running on top of NetBSD on several architectures, on top of Linux, or, maybe, on top of Interix...

Really great!
