BTW, somebody told me that NetBSD is faster in older computers but it is
wasteful on resources on better machines... Is that true?

I've noticed that when I log out, it takes about one second to show the
NetBSD greeting like linux. FreeBSD is just instantaneous. I solved this
in debian replacing agetty with mingetty which worked faster, but, what
makes NetBSD a bit slower that the other?

The same happens after entering the first login name... it takes about
a second (or less) to show the Password: string, but then it works fast.
