NetBSD "The NetBSD Project is pleased to announce NetBSD 6.0, the fourteenth major release of the NetBSD operating system. Changes from the previous release include scalability improvements on multi-core systems, many new and updated device drivers, Xen and MIPS port improvements, and brand new features such as a new packet filter. Some NetBSD 6.0 highlights are: support for thread-local storage (TLS), Logical Volume Manager (LVM) functionality, rewritten disk quota subsystem, new subsystems to handle flash devices and NAND controllers, an experimental CHFS file system designed for flash devices, support for Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) protocol, and more. This release also introduces NetBSD Packet Filter (NPF) - a new packet filter, designed with multi-core systems in mind, which can do TCP/IP traffic filtering, stateful inspection, and network address translation (NAT)."

I'll use NetBSD instead as it's quite a bit easier to find compatible, high-quality Wi-Fi chips that work under NetBSD than OpenBSD

That has not been my experience. I've always found them pretty much the same in terms of drivers due to the bsd cross-pollination.

[/q]a much broader selection of software in pkgsrc. [/q]

How much software do you need on a gateway? I hardly ever install anything other than maybe handful of software from ports on gateways.
