NetBSD The guys and girls behind the NetBSD project have released version 5.0 of their BSD operating system. NetBSD is a highly-portable operating system, the second open-source BSD implementation (after 386BSD). Naturally, version 5.0 comes packed with a whole boatload of improvements.

NetBSD for a BSD newbie?

I've been reading a lot of good things about the different BSDs lately, especially about NetBSD. Since I have actually zero experience with any BSD (well, except for m0n0wall and FreeNas, which I think are both based on FreeBSD), I was wondering if NetBSD would be a good 'beginners BSD' for basic server tasks?

Or does anybody have any pointers to more information on the differences and similarities between the main BSDs? I'm familiar with the Wikipedia pages, but more tech info on the differences would be nice :-)
