"This will apply mostly to neophytes but I have run several flavors of Linux on my home network in recent years but have only became interested in BSD since I began paying closer attention to my logs. I've been reading quite a bit about firewalls and IDSs and have settled on OpenBSD for the host. I just came across this article on unixreview.com that seems to have confirmed my choice (as have many others) and that attempts to briefly sketch the differences among the BIG 3 BSDs. Though my DB/Samba/Web server currently runs Mandrake, perhaps I'll consider moving to NetBSD and keep it all in the "family"...The article is a pretty decent overview of the BSD family, but more importantly it helps to spread the word. UNIX Review has normally been into Linux, so I was happy to see this.
The article URI is; http://www.unixreview.com/documents/s=7459/uni1040336129456/ "
