NetBSD From the announcement email: "On behalf of the NetBSD Release Engineering team, I am proud to announce that the first release candidate of NetBSD 5.0 is now available for download. Those of you who have been paying close attention will have noticed that RC1 was tagged on Sunday. A few hiccups delayed the availability of binaries, but they can now be downloaded from here."

its one of few OSes that still use XFree86 instead of Xorg by default.
Actually, NetBSD 5.0_RC1 ships X.org by default for many platforms (including i386/amd64). XFree86 is still available for those platforms not sufficiently supported by X.org.

use csh as his shell (although their install prompt you if you want. Beware! the "sh" listed is not bash).
Beware: not everyone's favourite shell is bash! NetBSD installs minimal sh/csh/ksh by default, but lets you install an additional shell from pkgsrc if you don't like them. Personally, I use zsh.
