Re: openbsd -> netbsd : same yet feels different ...

=> hello,
=> it's been 3 days since i took advice from "aaron b" and migrated
=> to netbsd from openbsd.
=> i won't go overboard and say that i'm an instant fan-boy, but
=> frankly, the system feels the same, yet quite different.
=> for one, the responsiveness while using the operating system is
=> much better than under openbsd (or even freebsd).
=> secondly, the community (mailing list) isn't grumpy. :)
=> i migrated primarily because of the upcoming support for "lua"
=> throughout the operating system, hope it materializes.
=> what else could someone who's not so much into system setup and
=> administration, nor into systems programming do with netbsd?
=> ah yes, i am not much of a 'gui' user, so will be working at the
=> console, primarily, but would be nice to know if there's anyone
=> here using or carrying over 'cwm' from openbsd, it's kinda nice.

   It looks like it is available in pkgsrc under wm/cwm. See to get started with pkgsrc.

   Good luck, and welcome.

                                    Gary Duzan

=> in closing, thanks for gracious support i have received ever
=> since i started pestering the list with questions of a naive type.
=> warm regards,
=> ~mayuresh
