  • I've had good experiences with NetBSD for desktop use, and some success with laptops. Certainly, hardware coverage is spotty. But I haven't had any panics since the NFS bugs that shipped in 1.6.0 (which were quickly fixed on the netbsd-1-6 branch). I understand that xorg is in pkgsrc, but I haven't tried using it, as XFree86 4.X works fine on my hardware.

    And I agree that NetBSD is nice in that it doesn't bury everything under layers and layers of buggy, undocumented shell scripts.

    But perhaps really what you should do is write plan9 drivers for the hardware you care about. You seem temperamentally well-suited to plan9.
