Tell that to the bank of 4GB amd64 4000+ boxes in the server room
behind me running a mixture of postgres, tomcat, and perl apps.
There are some applications where one of NetBSD or Linux is clearly
a better choice, and many more where both will work fine.
Certainly there is a lot of embedded development happening on
NetBSD at the moment, but that is why it has release and
development branches :)
