Not part of any in crowd but I am curious.  How was Jolitz
"screwed by the in crowd in the BSD/Usenix world"?

I got 38BSD on a set of floppies from someone in 92 or 93  -
can't remember - and I recall meeting Jolitz at some meetup
back then.  At the time I was using a Sun 3/50 (BSD) & a
Fortune Box (V7) but promptly bought a 386 box (with a full
16MB of memory) and installed 386bsd. I also played with
linux-0.11 but I recall reading something about Linus using
SysV as a reference and that was the end of my interest in
linux! Also because 386BSD was already available and did what
I wanted. Later BSD splits were distressing but so it goes.
