    Phoronix: NetBSD 8.0 RC1 Available, Bringing Initial USB 3.0 Support & Spectre/Meltdown Mitigation

    Waste of effort that otherwise could be used in other more relevant opensource developmen such as linux or freebsd. NetBSD is just not relevant anymore or even alive.

      Even though I am a hardcore Linux fan, netBSD does support a bunch of really obscure stuff nothing else (worthwhile!) does

        nothing against that.. just it realy lost its perspective, which I am sad for, coz I used it for some years and was very happy with it.

            I think NetBSD has another thing going for it: it's simple and easy to get into. Linux has grown to be a hugely complex beast that a computer science student won't understand and hack on in a matter of a couple of weeks or as a hobby, but NetBSD is very good for that. In a sense it's the new Minix, where people can easily learn stuff, experiment with it and get some hands-on experience with real world OS development.
