That seems like a very dramatic difference in response, to me.
How many of the vulnerabilities are in core NetBSD? Do some research...

Search CERT for vulnerabilities. I just did, and here are the numbers:

Vulnerability warnings:
OpenBSD - 295
Solaris - 306
NetBSD - 319
FreeBSD - 389
Mac OS X - 397
Windows - 1110
Linux - 1400

Or perhaps the National Vulnerability Database:

OpenBSD - 165
NetBSD - 186
FreeBSD - 432
Solaris - 680
Mac OS X - 1450
Windows - 2600
Linux - 3462

Which one looks better now?
