I was asked in private email from George why I bother asking these
questions, and was told that George has been using BSD since 1982. So
have I. I felt it necessary to explain why I ask these questions.
One of the reasons I use NetBSD-current is to keep up with the current
thinking in practical operating systems. The other reason is to have a
usable operating system. For this reason, I don't take a blind-faith
approach to the decisions of -core, and from time-to-time I like to ask,
"Why." I'm sure they know better, but I'd like to know the reasons
I'm sorry that George does not have this curiousity.
