I was looking into installing SunOS 10, but it doesn't look like my computer that I was going to install it on was fast enough. Can anyone tell me what the big differences between FreeBSD, NetBSD, and OpenBSD are? Which one would you choose over the other and why. Any input is thanked.
Just kidding Yes, it's probably a safe statement to say that FreeBSD has the largest install base. It's (generally) the easiest to install third party software on (or, has the most ports), which probably has a lot to do with it.
