Well, "BSD" covers a whole family of operating systems, including a
load of proprietary OSs built to run on specialist bits of hardware,
so I'd imagine he's probably correct. NetBSD certainly covers more
architectures than Linux does; FreeBSD covers fewer. Both Linux and
NetBSD have platforms that only they support.
