NetBSD. There is no lack of credit to the NetBSD developers in the
commit messages, web pages, etc. (Which isn't always conversely true of
NetBSD.) I should also point out that parts of OpenBSD are as much due to
FreeBSD or Lites as they are to NetBSD, and, of course, there's a lot of new
That's like someone pointing out that NetBSD wouldn't exist without the CSRG,
and calling NetBSD childish for having based their system on one from CSRG.
The originial 'question' was how to run a 'more secure' system, to which the
answer is 'run OpenBSD instead'. OpenBSD takes security far, far more
