NetBSD 9.3 and whimsy


This was my favourite addition to the release notes:

luna68k - make kernel messages green to match other ports and show off color support.

NetBSD is a professional operating system, but I also love a bit of whimsy. Same goes for OpenBSD’s songs and art for each release.

NetBSD have also long had an RSS feed available for their release announcements. I tend to read mailing lists for this sort of information, but I welcome anything to make these more accessible.

Author bio and support


Ruben Schade is a technical writer and IaaS engineer in Sydney, Australia who refers to himself in the third person in bios. Wait, not BIOS… my brain should be EFI by now.

The site is powered by Hugo, FreeBSD, and OpenZFS on OrionVM, everyone’s favourite cloud infrastructure provider.
