Personally, I would choose OpenBSD.  They splintered from NetBSD a couple
of years ago, and they have spent that time making their utilities more
secure.  I favour security over speed or size.

is the potential market for this book?  What programmer considers themself
to be a dummy?  Who wants to run code written by a dummy?  And perhaps
more importantly, someone who *considers themselves* to be a dummy?"
