Can easily use it on the pi bramble too.
I completely agree with you; NetBSD is terribly alluring, just so fun, just so: think out of the box, and to my mind the most true to the 386BSD/4.4BSD-lite inheritance.
To add something to this thread, as of 8.0, NetBSD OSS sound subsystem has been heavily reshaped. we now happily have in-kernel mixing, audio(4). It would be one day good on the other hand, to see it completely replaced with a modern OSSv4 implementation like Illumos Boomer

Apologies for the necro, if people here object to such things.
I don't think necro is a mustn't here but purposely going off-topic withing the same thread and diverting focus on a different subject surely is (which is not what I think you did here).

EDIT: by the way, welcome
