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."

Oh, what a lot of shit. Developers are NOT merging NetBSD with another project, and they won't. Pay attention to this: NetBSD, and the other BSDs, doesn't has the same goals Microsoft or Oracle have.

Have you looked at NetBSD website some time? Development mailing lists? I don't know why people like you, who knows nothing about the project, come here to make statements like these.
