Yay! The NetBSD Project has announced the 2.0 release. A lot of things has been upgraded and NetBSD now ships with, among many other things, gcc 3.3.3, FreeBSDs UFS2, a cryptographic disk driver (cgd(4)), SMP and ACPI support and a native threads implementation for all platforms.
/sbin is now statically linked
and for rescue use there's
/rescue of space-optimized
statically linked versions of various tools required to repair a system, so
actual thought has gone into it, unlike Linux. Yes, I have had the
joy of a busted Linux system because of a broken glibc. Impossible to save,
unlike a BSD or other
I got to try NetBSD 2.0, Real Soon Now™, NetBSD is the one of the three big BSDs I don't know relatively well, and I think I should.
