"Tom T. Thai" sez:
 * get lots of twisting going! :)  I am getting tired of seeing all this
 * support out there for Linux and FreeBSD but no native support for NetBSD.

This says some things:

	- LINUXUX gets the support because LOTS of people use it.

	- FreeBSD gets the support because it runs on ONE platform.

It's an unfortunate fact of life that if it runs on many platforms,
you better have a helluva user base or stuff won't get ported to it.
And of course, to get a user base, you need ported stuff (chicken/egg/
catch-22 scenario).

It sucks, but I guess that's life.
