If ye fired up yer browser and went to www.bsd.org ye see that it's already
being used for the good of the BSD's. They are heavily under construction.
btw, about the POSIX thing... NT tries to aim at POSIX compliance, so I'd say
POSIX is important and we should be pushing that name some more.
To attract developers we could be issueing some more statements with regard to
the diverse and _free_ compilers that are out there. I for one am way more
happy using *NIX now over Windows closed API's.
