Other SMP work

hubertf has a post up about NetBSD’s work to move to a different multiprocessing scheme, along with a 1:1 threading model.  This is similar to what DragonFly is doing, though a different methodology.

A rant for NetBSD

Charles M. Hannum, one of the originators of the NetBSD project, posted what I’ll call a rant about the state of NetBSD; he wants NetBSD to lead system development and he blames the organizational layout for slowing development.

It appears he wants to return to the less complex organization of the early days of NetBSD; I don’t think that’s relevant in this stage of NetBSD’s development.   (Is NetBSD the oldest existing open source operating system project?)
