Your evaluating all three OSes by the number of platforms
that they run on is truly insulting.

By doing so, you brush aside all work in subsystems such as SCSI,
VM, driver support and architecture, code cleanliness, etc.

It's certainly nowhere near as cut-and-dry as you make it; if it was,
there wouldn't be three separate OSes.  (Oh, and all three can
be considered "more secure")

Also, someone in this mailing list said I was for FreeBSD/more discussion.
This is not true; my offical stance is that I'm not for any such repackaging
for the reasoning that it won't achieve much.  What I do think would
be interesting is Debian involvement with OpenPackages.
