I inherited a bunch of NetBSD boxes so I learned it first.  I tried FreeBSD
a few times, but to many things weren't as cleanly implemented as in Net. I
found it extremely irritating.  If I am going to sacrifice elegance of 
implementation for a more drivers etc. I am going to use linux.  I find
that FreeBSD is a horrible cross between the two.  It isn't nearly as clean
as NetBSD, and it doesn't have the hardware support of linux. I however must
qualify that I don't have nearly as much experience with Free as I do with
the other two so I'm sure its not really bad as I think. ;)
