RE: Would you recommend NetBSD for…?

I don't share the same impression as you at all.
I have always considered NetBSD to be production ready. My preferences lay in
its default small disk and memory footprint and its stability.
The only downsides are if NetBSD lacks support for some required hardware or
software you must use. But this is true in varying degrees for all OSs.
What is your intended use? There are very few instances (for example, hosting
an Oracle db) in which NetSD is not well suited.
