Re: [PLUG] NetBSD Talk

I ran [mumble]BSD as a server some years ago, since then I've encountered it from time to time in appliance form (e.g., CoyotePoint's load balancers all ran NetBSD under the hood). I'd love to get some better information about it so sign me up - If I can actually make it to a meeting again.

+1 on the talk (North or West for me :).

I can't recommend _Absolute FreeBSD_ highly enough, awesome book.  Same
guy also has _Absolute OpenBSD_ but nothing for NetBSD.

A quick reminder on the different *BSDs might be good too.  As I recall:
        OpenBSD is the most "closed" and secure
        NetBSD is the one that runs on ANYTHING *and* EVERYTHING
        FreeBSD is the one that everyone steals and re-uses
