I fooled around with it 10 years ago and it was neat to have a fully functioning command line OS on the DC - but I just didn't see any interesting use for it. You can't go online so webbrowsers are out, you can't save to harddisk or write to removable media easily so office tools, art tools, graphics tools, are all not so usable. I didn't research much, but NetBSD doesn't seem to have much going in terms of games. Maybe there would be an app that could be compiled to play movies - that might have some utility except that we already have some good homebrew media players on DC already.
I think it's cool that NetBSD is on DC... but it's cool in a "wow you wouldn't expect this" kind of way, rather than a "this is entertaining and useful to me" kind of way.
