Original OSNews Interviews The main commercial company behind NetBSD is Wasabi Systems. The company has contributed advances and big chunks of code to the open source project, while they do offer a boxed release of NetBSD. However, their main business for the company is the embedded market and NetBSD is marketed as an embedded OS. Today, we talk to the Vice President of Wasabi Systems, Jay Michaelson.

and to put it in context I think NetBSD is cool because it can play on my Amiga 500

Only if youve seriously modded it, from the website : " Due to the MMU requirement, it will not run on A500, A600, A1000, A1200, A2000, A4000/EC030, CDTV or CD32 out of the box. You must install a CPU board on them to run NetBSD ... minimum RAM requirement is about 8 MB FASTMEM, the minimum hard disk space needed is about 75 MB".
