NetBSD From the NetBSD Blog: "The fourth (failing further faults, final) release candidate of NetBSD 5.1 is now available for download. Those of you who prefer to build from source can continue to follow the netbsd-5 branch, but the netbsd-5-1-RC4 tag is available as well. See src/doc/CHANGES-5.1 for the list of changes from RC3 to RC4."

You can build it from source but binary packages are also available since as long as I can remember, through pkg_add package. Trolling fail much?

Yes, of course. What else would it be built from?
Or is this some failed attempt at spreading the misinformation that NetBSD does not ship binary X?

Tell me... why is it so difficult to simply answer a question without this age old war of putting down an operating system. I'm a type "A" personality - we don't like to wait.
I use FreeBSD, but happen to like NetBSD better. All I wanted to know is do you still have to compile xorg??? If so, I don't have that kind of time.
