I don't think that's really such an unreasonable goal and I wish it were simpler on BSDs.
I've worked with Slackware, Debian, RedHat, Free/Net/Dragonfly/OpenBSD, Solaris, SunOS, AIX, HP-UX either in my home or at work. Each has a purpose. To me, even though Slackware has the best Unix feel, my preference is Debian. In terms of BSD, I lean towards Dragonfly. If I want to have a fate worse than death, I'll take RedHat. I can ramble on, but all this is just my leanings.
