I've been using NetBSD -current for a few weeks now. I'm coming from Linux. I must say I'm impressed. The only thing that takes some getting used to is that you really should use pkgsrc to install packages. A lot of apps don't natively support BSD, so you need to use pkgsrc, so the proper patches are applied.

Otherwise, I like NetBSD a lot. It's very clean, minimal, and fast.
