My apologies if I gavce anyone the wrong impression at the recent BSD
Super BOF at Usenix - Wasabi Systems ported the vmware kernel modules,
and Linux compatibility is used to run VMware itself as a host on

And so to the Package of the Month award - my personal favourite is
pkgsrc/audio/wmsmixer (used from enlightenment, BTW), which has taken
over as my mixer of choice - it's small, and can recognise mouse-wheel
movement.  Curt Sampson nominated pkgsrc/net/whatmask, which is a very
useful program for working out netmasks, CIDR and other useful network
information. And Soren Jorvang nominated pkgsrc/net/wistumbler, a useful
utility for sniffing raw 802.11 packets.
