Question What happen between NetBSD and OpenBSD in the past?

I don't want to start flame war or anything else, I just a newbie who come to BSD world and still don't understand much about BSD world. Basically, I made this topic just for grabbing some history knowledge .

I have read some topic from Wikipedia and some sites:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NetBSD
https://www.osnews.com/story/1455/op...y-netbsd-team/
https://mail-index.netbsd.org/curren...0/20/0004.html
https://www.theos.com/deraadt/coremail.html
https://www.reddit.com/r/BSD/comment...e_as_far_as_i/

Well, Hope this topic shouldn't gone far.... But seem I see NetBSD is basically the low quality of all BSD system when I want to use it for desktop as a newbie, is that NetBSD problem? I wish NetBSD could be better like FreeBSD and OpenBSD.

OpenBSD was created when Theo parted ways with NetBSD. Theo is the creator of OpenBSD. I won't say which BSD is better. That entirely depends on your use case and personal preferences. I like and run OpenBSD. Each to his/her own.

I believe it involved personalty issues, so OpenBSD was created.

I know you are new, but NetBSD does have some benefits

One of the largest Free UNIX Shell Sites uses NetBSD for its service: SDF

Their history is an interesting read.

There is also a NetBSD based desktop OS called OS108.

Do not blindly take on trust anything you read online, especially when it comes from random users claiming to understand whatever on anonymous social media and new aggregators –which not seldom result in masterful showcases of the Dunning–Kruger effect–

That's basically a set o shell scripts to automatize the installation of a MATE environment, execute common post-install tasks and make default some recommended settings for desktop use

Sorry, for act like a newbie in Linux :P who doesn't actually read and check if the information I read was right or not.

But you say right, we shouldn't trust any piece of information which come from the Internet. I think that NetBSD community have improve a lot like documentation, hardware support and pkgsrc become more stable. I am using NetBSD as desktop and use it to learn *nix world right now.
