OpenBSD Pre-orders for OpenBSD 4.0 are now available in the online store. Five architectures on three CDs in a soft-shell DVD case. Check out the highlights of OpenBSD 4.0. This new release adds support for many wireless chipsets, as well as support for the UltraSPARC III, and much, much more.

The Linux kernel supports more architectures and drivers that any other operating system in the world according to http://www.kroah.com/log/linux/ols_2006_keynote.html

Yeah. <irony>You just have to find out what patchset, or third party kernel branch, and find some userland that works properly with it.</irony> I have nothing against Linux, but Linux portability is nothing like portability of NetBSD or OpenBSD. E.g. in NetBSD one can build the system (kernel + userlands) for arbitrary platforms with a single command, from a single source tree.
