hubertf-xen.png The screenshot shows a Xen "domain0" virtual machine, with four other virtual machines started (see domain overview in the lower right corner): on the left side are two domains running NetBSD, with two xterms showing the console of the VMs, and VNC clients used to access the Xvnc servers running in those VMs, providing a GUI to them. A similar setup is shown on the upper right corner, which has booted Debian Linux, both with console in xterm and a VNC client to access the Xvnc server, too. The last VM runs FreeBSD as console only, with no X(vnc) started.

This image shows NetBSD development being done on Cygwin 1.7.0 / Windows XP. NetBSD can be compiled on many POSIX compatible operating systems, such as Solaris, MacOS X, and Linux.

NetBSD running under VMware Fusion Interested in trying out NetBSD? It's easy to give NetBSD a test drive in a virtual machine using software like VMware.

These images show NetBSD used in embedded development. The upper image shows a TS-7200 board equipped with in ARM9 CPU, 32MB RAM, flash drive, 10/100 Ethernet, Compact Flash, USB keyboard, WiFi-USB and serial (COM) ports. The parallel ports are connected to a numeric keypad and a HD44780 display, on which a login can be run, as shown in the lower image. All the code for this is in the main NetBSD distribution, no extra patches required!

stevew-shark2.jpg The item of interest in this picture is the horizontal grey box in the middle of the hi-fi cabinet. It's a diskless MP3 jukebox, running NetBSD/shark. The Shark is completely silent due to having neither disk drives (it NFS mounts its file-systems, including '/') nor fans (as it is based on the StrongARM processor, it generates negligable heat). The machine uses one of the S-video inputs on the TV for display purposes, and an infrared keyboard/mouse for input purposes. The Shark's audio output is of sufficiently high quality that it takes a discerning ear to tell the difference between the original CD and MP3 recording on this setup.

 Apps
Mathematica 5.1Matlab 6.5R13Maple 9.5 Thanks to binary emulation in NetBSD, it is possible to run many commercial applications that are not available for NetBSD natively, such as Mathematica, Matlab or Maple. The installation usually just requires you to add 'NetBSD' to the startup scripts as a supported platform.
