Do you realize that, in all the reasons you gave above, you criticized
NetBSD and keep repeating that you are "almost about to leave"?  It
has already "walked the path down" way way further than you can cope

The fact is that you do not accept many of the decisions / changes
that have happened in NetBSD for the past years, and as you just said,
you pretty much have your own fork.  There is no way you are going to
switch to a modern version of NetBSD.

My point is: Sincerely, why do you keep complaining about how bad and
evil NetBSD has become?  Why do you think these repetitive negative
complaints will help anything?  If at all, the only thing they do is
alienate or burn down people that otherwise could be doing useful
