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."

I do think theo is probably getting a kick out of all this. I wonder what theo would say about it. I wonder if there are any regrets about theos boot and if it affected the project or if it truly grew after that and then the detrimental things occurred later. Interesting at any rate.

I really don't think so. Even though there were/are some harsh feelings between Theo and the core group at the time of the breakup (10+ years ago at this point), I don't think Theo has ever wished for the utter failure of the NetBSD project. I mean it was his baby after all.

I don't know. I mean we are talking about THEO afterall. ;) I am just kidding. As I stated earlier I really do not know. I have always heard about Theo and I remember seeing some of the list mail from back then. I certainly do not think he would wish it but he might be a little smug about it happening. No? Maybe?
