NYCBUG, Adrian Chadd, and teeny tiny computers

Adrian Chadd has apparently been smushing FreeBSD onto MIPS systems for some time, and he’s going to talk about it tomorrow night at the NYCBUG meeting.  I’m noting it because I’ve always found it interesting how much can be stripped out of a kernel and userland and still have a functional system.

    Ultimately, I see some sort of NanoBSD-like build script which allows for a stripped-down system off a build box. Networking is an obvious area of bloat for all OSs.

    It’s going to be building *up* from the necessary on up though, besides dealing with cross-architecture issues for the base and ports. So DFly has a certain advantage with pkgsrc.
