MirBSD

MirBSD originated as a patch set against OpenBSD-current, an ultra secure operating system and NetBSD derivate, and has since also incorporated changes from NetBSD, a 4.4BSD-derived ultra portable operating system. It features bugfixes, code removal for the sake of simplicity, and feature enhancements over stock OpenBSD as well as a much more up-to-date GNU toolchain, careful integration of patches from other projects (such as KAME), and many improvements. It works on the Intel Pentium and some 80486 machines with more than 32 MiB RAM and the SPARC, and a port to the PowerPC Macintosh is in preparation.

Licences
FYI: the actual licences are all OSD/DFSG

compliant (but not OSI approved due to their

political activity regarding "licence proli-

feration"), except the GNU FDL. Strictly spo-

ken the GNU FDL licenced material is not part

of MirOS, but some (binutils and gcc docs) are

contained within the snapshots (although this

may change in the future).

Our primary licence is the MirBSD Licence,

to be seen at mirbsd.de/MirOS-Licence

or in /usr/share/misc/licence-template (and

an overview over licencing is given at

www.66h.42h.de/man7/BS... ).

I've fixed this in the project description.

OpenBSD is not 4.4BSD derived
OpenBSD was split from NetBSD after some people couldn't get along, and not derived from 4.4BSD. NetBSD is directly derived from 4.4BSD.
