I kinda like it.  But then, I like, "NetBSD ... of course", as well.  My 
usual reply to, "What do you use at home", is "NetBSD ... what else?".
As others in this thread have indicated, you get a lot of, "FreeBSD?".

"No, NetBSD!"

"Oh, what's that? I never heard of it!?"

A main line of "Of course it runs NetBSD" with a subtitle that implies (or 
out right states) "A multi-platform OS" might work well????

I liked the squad of daemons raising the flag on Mt. Computer too ...
but, I guess that's fallen out of favor.

Well, that's my 2 cents worth,
