[20090501] Why NetBSD?
Following the recent release of NetBSD 5.0, there is (of course) a lot of discussion in many forums. Here's one that I'd like to point out, asking "why NetBSD?", and answering it at the same time, listing the pros of NetBSD (esp. with what comes in 5.0: long support cycles, stability, Xen, Journaling, documentation), and some of the drawbacks (the packages system, no binary updates, no Java). The author also lists a number of personal things why he uses NetBSD.
