you can't really make a general statement like this about all
NetBSD developers. there is certainly a small (but vocal)
subset of emotional developers, but there are a lot of BSD
developers (often much less vocal) who are easy and fun to
unfortunately, the vocal emotional types often tend to overrun
places like the tech-kern mailing list making it an unfriendly
place to speak up or ask a technical question (because of the
high flame potential). look at the number of flames this thread
has produced! disgusting!! i certainly think twice before i post
here because i don't like getting flamed.
BTW, i often cross-reference with the freebsd VM in my work.
it is especially great now that FreeBSD has opened an anonymous
CVS server up (FreeBSD's switch from sup to CVSup made my life
at any rate, i suggest you talk this issue out face-to-face at
USENIX since i think a number of people are too busy preparing
for USENIX to give much time to this.
