NetBSD Charles Hannum, co-founder of NetBSD posted to 3 major BSD lists saying that "The NetBSD Project has stagnated to the point of irrelevance. It has gotten to the point that being associated with the project is often more of a liability than an asset. I will attempt to explain how this happened, what the current state of affairs is, and what needs to be done to attempt to fix the situation."

Disappointed

For these reasons and others, the project has fallen almost to the point of irrelevance.

I am very disappointed to read this. I have been using NetBSD off and on for several years and I really like the runs-on-anything appeal--even though I only use x86--and the system in general.
