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."

First of all, I have read for several years now, and I never registered. This post MADE ME REGISTER!

@Charles Hannum,

Are you drunk or something?
OMG, I can't believe what I read on your post!
NetBSD is VERY relevant, and the focus has alway been "Multi Platform".
Did you just go to "The Dark Side", and that's the reason you posted that message?
My friend, I've been using NetBSD for several years now, and also FreeBSD, and on some platforms (Sparc 64) I prefer NetBSD.
You are SO wrong, that it seems you have lost the edge on NetBSD, that you should get a life!
NetBSD is a sound and rock solid and VERY relevant multi platform OS. We use it at work EVERY DAY!
Please, stop spreading FUD, and if you no longer want to participate on NetBSD, then go somewhere else. But stop spreading this nonsense!

Again, I just can't believe what I read!
