NetBSD The NetBSD Project recently released NetBSD 5.0, the 13th major release of its Unix operating system. If you are not familiar with the BSD mentality, it's a back-to-basics approach. In this gallery we go from install to running a GNOME desktop in a virtualised VMware instance. This process is console-based.

I love how they skipped over the whole /etc/rc.conf thing one must do to set networking, etc. That is, to me, the hardest part of the whole thing.

You can totally configure networking by using other files such as /etc/ifconfig.<iface>, /etc/mygate. This is not new and allows for scripting your install configuration if needed.
