See src/doc/CHANGES-5.1 for the list of changes from RC3 to RC4."

True enough about the kernel, but often different architectures in Linux have a different userland (uclib vs glibc, ipkg vs apt/dpkg/rpm, etc). The nice thing about NetBSD is that regardless of the architecture you run it on it's still NetBSD, no odd userland quirks to watch out for nor new package management facilities to learn. Linux is a kernel, *BSD are complete operating systems.
