The question asked about a "modern" Unix variant. An OS that stays
fixed will cease to become "modern", with a speed that depends on how
stringently you define "modern".
If your idea of "modern" is "anything post-4.4Lite" then my
frozen-at-1.4T should do fine. If it includes things like SATA
support, sparc64 support, etc - all the things that NetBSD has done
since February 2000 - then it won't.
