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 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?

It's possible, I guess. I've been wrong before. I suppose if we were to watch the lists long enough, we'd get our answer.

Oh I don't think you are wrong. Just guessing same as me so we are both right. Until Theo steps in here all smug and sad at the same time. ;)

I just find it strange that the BSD people that booted Theo stated stuff about progressing and having a healthy environment and so forth are now the ones withering away.

Interesting to see some drama on the BSD camp side, instead of all the overly common linux drama. ;)
