I'd call that a bit harsh Perry. While it's true that the fellow asked
specifically about NetBSD (we don't know he didn't post a similar message
on FreeBSD groups - at least I, not following their lists, don't.)
But I appreciate the honest opinion about current hardware support etc.
I hope other people would also rather hear about problems than not know
about them, and until your message, I didn't see any (public) disagreement
with Mark's statement.
