Surely one of the other BSDs (OpenBSD as 1st choice, NetBSD as
second), maybe some of the more "UNIX-like" Linusi (the "too
complicated" ones, maybe those relying on source), and of course
Solaris and Mac OS X are worth mentioning here. Those systems
could be productive and good to maintain if FreeBSD should ever

Personally, I have experiences with OpenBSD, Solaris and IRIX
mainly, as well as some smaller Mac OS skills, so those would
be my point of orientation. Of course, _what_ to use them for
would be determining the choice.

But again allow me to express that this is my very individual
opinion that doesn't neccessarily apply to others.
