Personally, I've got about half a year of experince in both.
I run OpenBSD as a firewall with IPSec tunnelling at work,

I can't say it's huge, but it is something ;-)

Only BSD kernels, and not plug-n-play, but rebuild the whole 
package tree also. Suppose someone would want to run Debian/NetBSD
on the whole range of platforms the kernel runs at :)
