Thinking of NetBSD
When was younger, when I was in high school, I used to run NetBSD (3.1 through 5.0) on a old Pentium 3, a toy home server.
NetBSD is a wonderful system. It is the way a UNIX system should be.
I’m writing this post with sadness.
am was considering to switch back to NetBSD, but I discovered I just can’t.
NetBSD always had a lot less drivers compared to GNU/Linux.
Today that’s even worse. Today even Xorg requires some kernel-based support, which is absent in NetBSD.
Also, as someone told me in the #netbsd channel on Freenode, NetBSD also has a shortage of developers.
I am afraid the NetBSD project is going to die in the next decade.
So sad :’(
