I hope you're right.  But I look at what's happened to userland
and...well, I still expect as stated above, in large part because I see
a strong tendency to try to push NetBSD into other market segments,
especially what I might call the "clueless user" segment.

Neither am I.  I don't expect anyone to be until, at best, several
months before it happens.

What mis/disinformation?  That I think NetBSD is going down a very
wrong path?  That I still expect the Project to take another, fairly
major, step in that same "wrong" direction?  That I think people who
don't like something I expect to happen might want to prepare for it?
