joe213 Some time ago I was asked, why I use NetBSD and not OpenBSD.
Here's my answer to that...
"When I started using Linux I wanted a rolling-release, bleeding-edge distro without systemd, that’s how I found Void.
Had a look at Alpine also, read about musl libC and decided to use that on Void. Also, I wanted to build my system from scratch and use a tiling window manager, …awesome wm.
I got interested in BSD as, I’m not happy with the increasing influence that Microsoft has on the Linux foundation. I want to have a system ready to move to in case I’m no longer happy running Linux.
I didn’t want a DE, I don’t see myself running anything else other than awesome wm on my machines, so this excluded GhostBSD and TrueOS/Trident.
I wanted to run one of the original BSD’s with awesome wm.
Somehow, I’ve always felt attracted to smaller and less popular operating systems, so FreeBSD was out.
It all boiled down to OpenBSD, NetBSD or DragonFly. Void was created by a NetBSD dev, so I was curious about it and picked that. I must say I’m happy with it, simple, tidy and intuitive.
Hope it makes some sense…
I could have just said that I like orange on dark grey."
