I think NetBSD 2.0 could take advantage of this to get new users:

FreeBSD 5.3 is "stable" but not production-ready

Benchmarks could show NetBSD beating FreeBSD in areas where FreeBSD was 
stronger, like performance. And gain some respect getting rid of the 
"NetBSD is for exotic platforms and old computers" logic once and for all.

We all make mistakes, but our mistakes can be the opportunity others need.
FreeBSD developers and release enginners have done a great job and will 
again in the future, but this hiccup might as well be the opportunity 
for NetBSD to be considered a respectful competitor in the i386 platform 
in terms of performance on pair with FreeBSD and Linux.

What's your opinion?
