Where does SysVR2 fit in number of syscalls?

I spent time patching them several months ago...

There are just a few potential users of /proc and they were already using other facilities. plus /proc is an optional facility. All this conspired to make /proc less useful in FreeBSD. Unused code is in danger of being garbage collected in FreeBSD :-)

Whatever happened to the Unix philosophy of everything looking like a file?  Adding more system calls is the Windoze (or perhaps Penguin) way of doing things.

Actually FreeBSD has much more system calls than Linux -- around 540 as compared to around 300 the last time I looked.

To give a fair perspective -- both UNIX V7 and Plan 9 have around 50 system calls.

And Windoze 7 has more than 700...
