which one ( Free-, Open-, Net-)


maybe this question as been asked often, but i ask it once again:

Which one would you suggest for a newbie with *BSD ( but familiar with GNU/Linux)?

I recommened that you read this:
http://www.over-yonder.net/~fullermd...bsd4linux1.php

It doesn't tell you what BSD is best for you but maybe it helps you understand something about them and helping you choosing the right one for you.

They're all equally well documented, so I don't think there's really any difference for a newbie. Basicly you just pick the one that best suits your needs and you stick with it (see the sticky post at the top of this forum to tell which one best fits your needs).
