If netbsd is a cat, and oh!ess!ten is variously a panther, tiger,
puma, (pard?  olestra?), openbsd is a fish (and some damned
anthropomorphic lips), probably freebsd is really a 1938
pontiac, and windows is a cow-duck hybrid with post-it notes
stapled to its spine (or maybe that transporter accident from
Star Trek: Der Movin' Picture!).
