No, we combine the advantages of Debian, GNU, and the kernel of NetBSD. The superiority of GNU userland repect to NetBSD's is an issue too, and you seem to be ignoring it. no, it's more that we (at least perry and i, and most of the netbsd developers) _don't think GNU userland is superior_. but that's not the point. the point is that debian (bsd) is about providing the choice... it doesn't matter what any one thinks is superior.. .mrg.
