NetBSD 6.1_RC3 is not on ftp://ftp.netbsd.org/pub/NetBSD/
nor on the NetBSD blog, so I was guessing that it was deemed not ready.
NetBSD has an awful hard time on my Intel Sandy Bridge system, in contrast to
FreeBSD, so I thought I might wait, maybe try HEAD.
I have netbsd-5, netbsd-6 and netbsd-HEAD for both i386 and amd64 installed on
separate USB sticks.
netbsd-5 is on 5.2 now, and i don't intend to keep going as much with netbsd-5
as with 6 and HEAD.
FreeBSD and Linux figure to take much time away from NetBSD with me.
Update: I see on nyftp.netbsd.org that they are now on NetBSD 6.1_RC4, so far
15 successful builds including amd64, one failure (alpha); i386 hasn't been
Maybe 6.1_RC3 wasn't "released", recalling the debate over whether NetBSD 5.1.1
was ever "released".
