    My friend used to dual boot with netbsd, he recentley switched to FreeBSD. I would say you're probably better with freebsd, if your into desktop and performance. NetBSD is for people who like to port everything to everything.

    Currently SuSE 9.2 and Mandriva 2005 LE. Going to try and replace Mandriva for Slackware 10.1 when I get the chance.

    I guess "multiboot" would be a more apt description of my current setup. I'm sure that in a week or so this setup will change as well (as my attention span with OSes is usually kind of short). Currently I have one harddrive with SuSE 9.3 64-bit and Windows XP on it, and one harddrive with FreeBSD 5.4 on it. That second harddrive has also recently housed PC-BSD (very nice by the way), SimplyMepis 3.3.1, and a handful of other random Linuxes that I've had the inkling to try.

    My plan for the future *may* be to replace XP on the dual-booting drive and stick FreeBSD on it. For now I'm still not comfortable enough with the way BSD handles partitions and booting to do that just yet, but I'm learning quickly. Not to mention I can run Warcraft 3 in SuSE (via Cedega) so I have very little reason left to keep the XP partition. :P

    Hmm, Warcraft 3 on SuSE instead of Windows. Sounds like something I need to try. :P Is that also with Frozen Throne?
