I keep trying NetBSD and currently installed 7.1 with 2017Q3 binary packages. My biology background says a little diversity is a good thing. The base install is fine but pkgsrc is currently very buggy Most of the major DE's have missing dependencies (xfce4 meta-pkg) and some binary packages that were built with older dependencies crash at start up. If you are looking to fix things or want to try build a light weight system from source you may be able to get it to work. If on the other hand you want a DE/Office suite/Graphics, etc you are are likely to spend alot of time and not have much to show for it.

Also, OpenBSD supports more recent intel video chips
