there's another: undeadly readers, while not as stupid as the
general slashdot crowd, seems to miss all points of about.htm
except wtf and the differing uname. The list of "features" is
(to me, it looks like) mostly a MirBSD #7 -> #8 change summa-
ry... which is not appropriate for an operating system as ours.
Therefore I suggest we collect a few list items which we can
really place there - about.htm has probably not really been
touched for ages... as Waldemar (wbx <at> ) said, we need to de-
fine our identity [more strongly]. This is not just a custo-
mised OpenBSD, and there are more people than just me deve-
loping. Let's show them that!
In fact, I'd like to disemphase the fact that we started as
OpenBSD patch kit. Let's concentrate on what we are now: a
BSD operating system with a couple of "target markets" (de-
veloper workstations, small and medium servers, routers, em-
bedded i386, and SPARCstations), strengths and weaknesses,
and decidedly so for some things (e.g. the missing Kerberos
stemming from size reduction, and the increased space requi-
rements (especially for XFree86®) that come from Unicode sup-
port). How about actual users answering this call with what
_they_ like most about MirBSD, what makes them use it?
I believe no one can invent an algorithm. One just happens to hit upon it
when God enlightens him. Or only God invents algorithms, we merely copy them.
