Hi, I'm kinda new to the OpenBSD world. I've been using FreeBSD for
over a year now, so I'm not *BSD illiterate, just OpenBSD challenged.
I was just wondering, since NetBSD is about to go to version 1.2 does
that mean that OpenBSD will be doing so as well?
Now I'm assuming that since OpenBSD is following NetBSD's source tree
that it has all of the NBSD 1.2 goodies like FreeBSD and Linux Emulation
as well as support for VFAT and Win95 long filenames. Am I correct in
One of the reasons that I'm really looking hard at OpenBSD is because I
like the fact it's incorporating a "ports" system. But is that all that
it will be taking from the FreeBSD world? I'm wondering whether OpenBSD
will be looking at incorporating the netatalk and ipx stuff that FreeBSD
is working on for their next release, or is OpenBSD's source basically
cleaned up NetBSD code?
Am I asking too many questions?
Anyway, thanks for reading my mail and I look forward to your responses.
