One of the best just got better - if you haven't tried NetBSD, please give it a spin, this OS is a treat!

Beyond the obvious (amazing portability), I have found NetBSD to be a very stable and light system, the kind that gets the job done efficiently, even on small configurations.

Congratulations to the entire NetBSD team!
