 ## History of NetBSD/mac68k  
   
 [Allen Briggs](http://www.ninthwonder.com/~briggs/) was the port  
 maintainer of NetBSD/mac68k up until the release of [NetBSD  
 1.2](../../releases/formal-1.2/). He handed this position over to Scott  
 Reynolds effective as of the 1.2 release. Here is Allen's story of the  
 origins of NetBSD/mac68k:  
   
 *Once upon a time...*  
   
 > [Brad Grantham](http://www.plunk.org/~grantham/), got to thinking that  
 > a cool, cheap workstation with a decent interface, tools, and  
 > capabilities would be a lot of fun to build and sell and was just what  
 > the world needed. Well, he started talking to some friends and they  
 > decided that a nifty first step would be to make some money by selling  
 > a real cheap Unix for the old Mac II's (that were required for CS  
 > majors at Virginia Tech for a couple of years -- basic config? 80MB  
 > HD, 2MB RAM, A/UX 1.0/1.1--later upgraded to 2.0).  
 >  
 > At this time, Berkeley Networking Release 2 (Net/2) was available on  
 > the Internet and 386BSD 0.0 had recently been released, so that looked  
 > like a handy place to start. Brad and [Lawrence  
 > Kesteloot](http://www.teamten.com/lawrence/) spent a lot of time and  
 > sweat getting the system to almost work--relieving stress by killing  
 > earwigs. They got the system up to single-user mode, but hit a slump  
 > that Chris Caputo broke. Chris also did a significant amount of work  
 > to get the system to be self-hosting and read/write SCSI at a decent  
 > rate. About this time, there was lots of wind about great things to  
 > come from 386BSD 0.2, but there was also these new system, NetBSD,  
 > that seemed to be going somewhere. Chris began to merge the existing  
 > code to NetBSD's 0.8 release.  
 >  
 >  
 > Well, that summer (1993) saw several changes: Lawrence went off to  
 > grad school; Chris went to Microsoft and got married; Brad moved to  
 > California; and [Allen Briggs](http://www.ninthwonder.com/~briggs/)  
 > and Michael Finch started working on the system instead of just  
 > hanging around like spectators. They got MacBSD merged into NetBSD 0.8  
 > by the time that NetBSD had progressed to 0.9... At Christmas that  
 > year, Brad and Lawrence got back together and had a hacking session  
 > with Mike in Mike's apartment. This led to support for a few more  
 > systems and was generally considered to be a Good Thing.  
 >  
 > Allen took on the responsibility of keeping the mac68k code up to date  
 > and managed to do so while also making some improvements and merging  
 > in the occasional contributed changes.

 > Mac (and nobody cares about it)."
