NetBSD, for When Portability and Stability Matter

NetBSD: Ultra-portable and stable Unix variant of the *BSD operating
system family

The BSD family tree is almost biblical in lineage. The original BSD
begat 2BSD, which begat 4.3BSD, which begat 386BSD, which begat FreeBSD
and NetBSD, which begat OpenBSD. Or something like that. The actual
diagram of BSD history may look like a Rorschach test, but there are
currently three major flavors of BSD actively developed and used:
FreeBSD, NetBSD, and OpenBSD. Technically, one could argue Apple's OS X
is a fourth BSD family OS, but it is a special case.
