well its wrong.  they use bsd userland, stuff like find, cp, ls, mv et
al.  NOT the kernel.  the BSD kernel is monolithic and in no way would
fit into a mach setup.

well they did create thier own kernel, using the mach package as a
starting point.  the only bsd there is a little bit of bastardized and
ruined userland stuff, not kernel land stuff.

well there ya go, just because netbsd is nice on i386 means nothing on
powerpc.  porting brings instability, and each port has to mature on
its own.
