Yes as many others have noted, I cleary did not have my thinking cap
on. Let me correct myself:

NetBSD and FreeBSD both have deep roots in 4.3BSD NET/2, 386BSD, and
4.4BSD Lite. NetBSD is not a fork of FreeBSD but OpenBSD is a fork of
NetBSD. DragonFly BSD is a fork of FreeBSD 4.x, etc. etc.

With all the inbreeding it's hard to remember who's your daddy. :-)
