You're gonna get me flamed here! That was deliberately not sento the list :->

I bought my DC because of what I saw on the netBSD site, it is clear and well 

I have booted my DC with netBSD and even played hangman on it. But the simple 
fact is that I see little sign of development activity here (flame away if I 
am wrong).

I can boot my DC into X (after a fashion) on Linux - and there seems to be 
real development activity going on.

Whatever you do, you're going to have some difficulties as you are using 
Windows - you'll need an environment like Cygwin - it can be done, though.

Better still, join the revolution and get some free software!
