Re: Definition of NetBSD users
*) Is NetBSD trying to outlinux Linux as a desktop system (like support Flash,
Skype, etc. out of the box) or does it just provide a desktop if you need one?
There's already PCBSD and even it is a Johnny-come-lately in that respect.
More generally, it there a clear idea what NetBSD is going to be? Will it keep
its profile as a lean and clean BSD or become yet another Un*x?
Beside being free, secure etc.
+ NetBSD defines itself as 'highly portable Unix-like operating system'.
+ Pkgsrc is (at least i believe) the most flexible and also layered
framework (ie; you should use same versions of openbsd and ports, you
can not mix them).
By combining these two works, you will have the most portable operating
system + 3rd party applications.
So; it is a server, a desktop machine, a friend of hobbyists, an
assistance of researches... NetBSD is 'all' and via same source code;
very very good work.
That's 'one of the reason' i love it, and i'm using it mostly as a
desktop (notebook) operating system.
