Well, there's one OpenBSD and one NetBSD.

Off the top of my head, FreeBSD has begotten:
* DragonflyBSD
* m0n0wall
* GhostBSD

>From some cursory research, there are also:
* MidnightBSD
* pfSense
* FreeSBIE
* DesktopBSD

Whether FreeNAS and NAS4Free count is open to interpretation.

There are others, too.

I have played with PC-BSD and GhostBSD, both of which I quite liked
but found too minimal for me compared to Linux. I thought MidnightBSD
was dead but apparently there's recently been a new release, which I
shall investigate.
