Well, at least it used OpenBSD as a basis for its kernel.
Latest version (4.1.1) has a 2.4 kernel according to strings. Code is
mostly from '96/'97, with a few modules from '98.

I've heard several things, all of which are rumor through third-parties.
- SCSI drive support (yippee!)
- Switch from OpenBSD kernel to FreeBSD or Linux (for SMP)
- Increased performance (safe to say)
- Enhanced N-code
I'm hoping that 5.0 will let me install from the CD on some shiny new
rack-mount systems (Intel ISP2501).
