*nod* Perhaps you all should try FreeBSD and OpenBSD before
you go work on them :)  I would guess that nearly half of the
people who want Debian/BSD have little BSD experience- at least
that's the way I remember it when this FIRST came up, many moons

Right, except Linux isn't BSD, and vice versa- there's no way
to just plug-and-play the kernels.

Well, technically, NetBSD and it's 32 some platforms takes the
hat for hardware support ;)

But for things like my SBLive, it's FreeBSD or bust.  Until someone
ports newpcm to NetBSD... (gears turning in head)
