  1. The “still faster” link was a great read. A short CS course. Thank you for posting it.

  2. Is NetBSD’s sort the same OpenBSD sort? I think it’s based on the Minix one but I recall it was rejected on FreeBSD due to lack of i18n, and it’s also slower than GNU sort.

    Dragonfly (and Debian GNU kFreeBSD obviously) seems to be the only BSD that has not taken any particular approach regarding GPLv3 software.

  3. DragonFly does have a particular approach: “Let’s not reject software based on license, but rather adopt based on utility.” Though that’s probably a much more formal description than the actual events.
