There is no version skew, no patching in between, no nonsense that makes linux the maintenance drama that it is. linux can be emulated seamlessly on BSD so game servers for linux work on BSD etc.

The beauty of NetBSD is it is cut down, unbloated and portable. Meaning it can run on slower machines easily.
Do you know where I could download a copy of NetBSD?
