The NetBSD 3.1 release contains complete binary releases for 48 different machine types, and support for six more machine architectures in source form.

This is the most amazing thing about NetBSD. Distilling out the hardware-specific code to the point of supporting over 50 different architectures demonstrates true skill in coding and organizing.

The numbers in the original release announcement are wrong (they've been corrected now), there are actually binary releases for 53 architectures + 4 more in source-only form.
