Yea I ust never really got into the NetBSD thing. In mean, I don't HATE 
NetBSD, I just don't care about it.

Agree :) I like how FreeBSD managed to make a system that was actually 
USABLE and ALSO secure. I mean, if you're not sure, you can look 
something up and learn how to do it in a very short time due to the 
great docs, and the great books.

Oh I know! It amazes me just how Talented he is. And of course being 
very friendly. I was actually nervous about meeting him because, you 
know, when you meet a hero, you worry about people who talk about Glenn 
Danzig being a Jerk sometimes and it ruins it for you, but he's a 
really nice guy. I didn't have a whole conversation or anything, but he 
was very nice to me, and I was glad he wasn't pissed about the long ass 
email I sent so it was nice :)
