Talking about NetBSD, there are a lot of platforms which are supported
by NetBSD but not by Linux. We have now two old Vaxen running with
NetBSD and I like it, but installing software or upgrading is a
pain. I mainly ends in just overwriting a lot of files or making a new
install. I have at the moment the problem, that I want to replace
sendmail version 8.8.8 with version 8.9 to have the spamming rules,
but I have not done it yet because it's not as easy as it would be
with Debian Linux.

So I'm thinking of buildung a Debian NetBSD/Vax at least for the
additional packages.
