*BSD offshoot distributions
The night before, over a beer or five, Vasil Kolev, Georgi Chorbadzhiyski, Boyan Krosnov, and I had an interesting discussion about the difference in the development model, distribution model, and/or design philosophies between the various Linux and *BSD OS's (or should I say distributions?). When Vasil asked if there were any *BSD distributions besides Free/Net/OpenBSD, I couldn't come up with a lot of examples, although I knew there were some. Well, as a first approximation, there are TrustedBSD, EkkoBSD, The FreeBSD LiveCD Project, and just today I heard about a new one, LittleBSD, which even sports some anime artwork (and there's more around the site).
I know there are more, it's just that I cannot think of them at the moment.
