Thanks for the reference.  While this paper shows that NetBSD (1.0) is
faster in most tests than Windows and Windows NT, it does show places
that could use more optimization.

Of course, being geared toward performance benchmarking, the article
doesn't mention some of the strong points of NetBSD: portability, much
cleaner abstraction barriers, binary compatibility with other
operating systems, and the simple fact that it's free, and anyone can
hack on it.
