I don't know if the IIvx port and the ADB problems are related. Of
course, ADB doesn't work on every machine that NetBSD even supports,
so who knows?

I guess this is a matter of the age-old question "which is better,
POSIX or BSD?" (Okay, the age-old question is "SYSV or BSD", but
basically, the same thing) Or it's like "I say Tomato, you say
Tamata". Basically, a matter of prefence. And since when is choice a
"bad" thing?

At least from what I can see, Linux has a greater level of acceptance
than any of the versions of BSD out there. It also seems to be the
most standardized. 

Until 'dt' gets working on my external monitor on the SE/30, I can't
do much with NetBSD.
