    I am glad NetBSD is still around. Between the complaints of this and that UN*X type systems no longer a UN*X, NetBSD is one system that you never hear that complaint. It is a small and very nice UN*X system with some interesting features. I even mounted a very broken file system using rump to pull some files from it that were created after my last backup. Nevermind 7+ supports in kernal lua, which seems intriguing to me.

    Does it use systemd?

    • No, but NetBSDs 3 through 6 do put up dialog boxes in turn "offering a free upgrade", "recommending a free upgrade", "Click the X at the top right of the window to upgrade", and then, finally, "Upgrading to NetBSD 7 because you weren't around to tell me not to".

Refreshed by a brief blackout, I got to my feet and went next door. -- Martin Amis, _Money_
