I very doubt that. Based on the experience in my previous job XFS doesn't
work particular well. It has bug which lock up your system (and Red Hat
took a look time to integrate the fixes into the RHEL 6 kernel) and it
doesn't perform very well under certain work loads.

The long hanging fruit would be to improve NetBSD's ext2 support to
include ext3 support. The next target should probably be ext4 because
that is the bread and butter file-system at the moment.

NetBSD should just work under HyperV. But having para-virtualised
drivers would help performance.

SCTP is a layer 4 network protocol like TCP or UDP.
