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."

Yes, and if you're just looking for something without all the new bells and whistles Linux (or FreeBSD) offers, it's great. On an older notebook I own, I dual boot Debian and NetBSD, but use NetBSD most of the time. X.org + Fluxbox + GNUstep applications.

Firefox is getting kinda show these days, however.

BTW, I misread "darknexus" at first...read it as Dr. Lexus. :-p
