Absolutely agree. It is so impressive current versions run on the Amiga at acceptable speeds. I make the video captures to show people how efficient NetBSD is and what an Amiga can do nowadays.

A very good and tasteful work, I really liked it.

Yeah, it was just a typo, but as it was just a quick test I didn't bother in fixing and capturing the video again. Thanks for pointing out anyway.

I didn't know NetBSD's ftp handled http downloads as well! I am quite used to GNU/Linux, but there are many things I still have to learn regarding the BSD family in general and NetBSD specifically :)

Thanks for the comments!
