    That's really cool.

    As soon as Mozilla's plugin is ready OpenBSD is back on my desktop.

      I'd say it's more significant on the server side ...

        Yes, Tomcat on OpenBSD...

    Good to hear, but would OpenBSD's FreeBSD-ulator and/or Linux emulation be good enough so that you could bootstrap-build from OpenBSD? I imagine that FreeBSD's various *.mk files could be pretty easily used with OpenBSD.

      read the post. we don't emulate linux kernel threads. there are no freebsd binaries available.

    Does it build with Freesbie for transfer to my OBSD dev notebook?

    I haven't tried, but I'm not sure I have the SCSI/IDE space for another drive to put freebsd on right now...
