Speaking of which, I remember a CD package of FreeBSD that had a photo
of a fire hydrant on the cover. Think it was 4.10, but can't find it in
a search. Personally, I think it looks kinda cool, sort of like the
packaging on a game rather than an OS, and it does have sort of a ...
kitchy feel, I guess (maybe that wasn't intended), but the subject of
the photo doesn't make a whole lot of sense ... or maybe just to me.
I've always wondered about that. Anyone know the significance, in case
I'm missing something?
