I doubt this was the original intention, but it looks like it's headed that way... At this point in time it seems like there's a fair amount of porting, backpatching, and code sharing between the BSDs. Who came first has less to do with anything than the philosophy and focus of each project today, and how well it fits with a particular application. If the wikipedia article helps people determine suitability for a purpose then it's worthwhile. The history is already out there, and can be included or merely linked to. -- Darrin Chandler | Phoenix BSD Users Group [EMAIL PROTECTED] | http://bsd.phoenix.az.us/ http://www.stilyagin.com/ | _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
