Thanks, eventhough the info is not encouraging me to
lean towards NetBSD. We are trying to see if we can
use the NetBSD for our switch for the future release.
I wanted to see if it is worthwhile to take a look at
the NetBSD among other RTOS like Vxworks, pSOS and
may be embedded Linux. We need a distributed system
for HA which the legacy RTOSes lack.
