This might be the only reason I am still on this mailing list, I don't
even run OpenBSD, I just like the discourse of the people on here. (mind
you I'd be running OpenBSD if it worked on my hardware but it is not to
be, that's ok, no one owes me a working OS)
I might be being dramatic or something by saying this is a special time
right now when the internet and OSS are 'new' (ok they aren't new but a
project like this or the other BSDs or Linux which are open to the public
(not just people in academia) is a relativly new thing). Without the 'net
I would have never heard of Unix, and without the net I wouldn't have very
many people to talk about Unix with. (Unix at the school I go to is 'that
thing that's like DOS')
To me this a special community.
