Re: NetBSD vs. FreeBSD

| For reference, how the problem was solved in FreeBSD:
| * About four months ago `linux-flashplugin-9' was added to the ports

| It works perfectly (still with no sound, though, if I am not
| mistaken) in opera and linux-opera.

As I am pondering some use of NetBSD, this is very helpful.

Good to know!..

Thanks a lot -- this is another reason for me to try NetBSD!
