The three free BSDs are direct heirs of the original
Berkeley Software Distribution(s).
Each kernel is specialized, but because of a strong tradition of code
sharing, each also benefits from advances made by the other two.
FreeBSD aims at an IA32 optimized kernel.
OpenBSD aims at security.
NetBSD aims to run on everything.
Today all three OSes are famous for:
1. Strict adherence to standards.
2. Superiority of network code.
3. Satisfying full bodied mouthfeel.
