Well, no; that would be like confusing "English" and "Germanic

Well, the leading N sound needs to be palatalized, as I understand it;
the sound _is_ better transcribed into English spelling rules as "nyet"
than "net". (Not that _you_ need to be told this; this is more to the
list than to msokolov.)

Your "meaning" for NetBSD is amusing, but (like most dogmatic positions
taken for political reasons) rather incorrect factually, as someone
else already pointed out.

NetBSD is not BSD in the strict sense of having come from the CSRG at
Berkeley - but then, nothing is that is today simultaneously (a)
bootable, (b) open source, and (c) legal to run for those without
licenses that are expensive (if obtainable at all).
