NetBSD "The NetBSD Foundation announces that it has hired Andrew Doran to work full-time on improving symmetrical multi-processing in NetBSD. This work is made possible through a generous donation by Force10 Networks and internal funding by The NetBSD Foundation. Andrew Doran is an independent, Dublin based Unix systems consultant with special interest in building scalable systems. He has been a NetBSD developer since 1999 and is currently working on the transition from a big-lock SMP implementation to a fine-grained model, which allows multiple CPUs to execute code in kernel context simultaneously. Hiring Andrew full-time will boost work in this area, with the final result of a SMP implementation that is ready for tomorrow's multi-core-CPUs."

When people (like you) say (again) about merging code base of BSDs, that NetBSD is a dead project... oh, nevermind.

I bet a lot of money you never read or used neither NetBSD nor the other BSDs, never did a "hello_world.c" or looked to a C code in your life.

Get a job, dude.
