 Happy 15th birthday NetBSD!

The NetBSD Project celebrates its 15th anniversary: The first commits were made to the NetBSD source code repository on March 21, 1993, and the first release of the NetBSD Operating System, NetBSD 0.8, was announced on USENET shortly thereafter. Throughout the past fifteen years, NetBSD has increased the portability and security of the 4.4BSD operating system on which NetBSD was based, and added support for new processor and system families, while enhancing the system's performance to such an extent that NetBSD has become known as the most portable operating system in the world. Innovations in the storage, networking and virtualization arena have been added, and much work has been done recently on performance, especially with multi-core and multi-threaded machines in mind.

The NetBSD developers also share their plans for NetBSD 5.0 and 6.0: Roadmaps covering storage, networking, virtualization and the system itself have been published.
