Sure. That is the reason why I referred both the quasijarus project and
NetBSD. I wanted to give _him_ the choice. 

I own a lot of different old machines. (DEC, Sun, HP, IBM, ...) On most
of this machins runs the same OS, NetBSD. I like it to see the same
software running on an old VAX and on a state of the art Alpha. I am
usung NetBSD for years now, so my preference of NetBSD is historical
