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.
