No threads in leafnode, and the fork it does in fetchnews could easily
be dropped in an AmigaOS port. :-]

(And you won't get hard links on FAT without a reimplementation of the

Oh, it's quite useful, fast and reliable in spite of its age. Are you
telling us Windows is up-to-date? Because it plays nice graphics games
and every subsequent version of Windows requires more horse power just
because it carries more bloat? Linux or FreeBSD, for example, evolve
into saving ressources with new releases... Ever heard about zerocopy
