The NetBSD startup process is extensible, flexible, and a little daunting at first. This article looks at the configuration mechanisms used to enable or disable features, and compares NetBSD’s startup procedures to those of other systems. The NetBSD Project has also announced that it has launched an international competition for the creation of a new logo. The cash prize is US $100 for the winning entry. Our Take: I hope the winning entry resizes well (see: it is clear enough) at 32x32pix, so we can update our NetBSD logo here at OSNews too.

I am kind of sad that NetBSD is dumping the legacy symbol of BSDs after all those years. I am rather stuck with FreeBSD, but I am also big fan of NetBSD and looking at toasters run by a company of daemon engineer always made me smile. I will miss that and I do hope that it won’t disappear right away from every material on NetBSD, even if the new logo will be heavily promoted.
is the logo they have now. Some research showed it was
to complex, and some gets offended by the deamons.
It might surprise you, but after hearing *one* of the reasons
RedHat dumped – /usr/games/fortune – they got lots of complaints
about offending jokes, nothing really surprises me.

Don’t be sad child, come over to the dark side and be a companion to the Devil.
