In Other BSDs for 2017/03/25

More thinking topics than version changes this week, which is interesting.

I measure the success of In Other BSDs by how many different BSD flavors I can reference.  This is a good week.

Lots of storage this week.

A lot of the real content this week is buried in the comments, strangely.

Note the end this week of pc98, the most focused of niche platforms.

This turned into a BSD User Group event list, which makes me happy.  There was nothing like that 3 or 5 or whatever years ago.

Started out with a short list, but I managed to find some extra links by Friday.

Full-offload scan and what it means
