    1: [[!meta title="The Attic Museum"]]
    2: 
    3: Over time, several kernel components were removed from NetBSD, often because
    4: they were too hard to maintain, not always functional, and because the features
    5: they implemented were not particularly wanted anymore.
    6: 
    7: This page provides a list of these removed components, with references to the
    8: original code.
    9: 
   10: Only the features that were not superseded are listed.
   11: 
   12: Each component used to be maintained and functional, but over time became
   13: broken because of lack of interest and inability to test changes, especially
   14: on old hardware and ABIs. An estimation is provided of the NetBSD release
   15: believed to have had the most functional version of each feature, before the
   16: feature started deprecating. Note that this estimation may not be totally
   17: accurate.
