 * more pkgs due to more developers
 * better tested/maintained pkgs, due to more developers
 * more features in the pkg/ports system
 * 100% same pkgs if you switch to another BSD :-)
 * <insert usual advantages or a pkgs/ports system>, e.g. see
   http://www.netbsd.org/Documentation/software/packages.html#advantages

I don't want to be insulting, but how many pkgs do you maintain that you
ask about the benefits for a _end user_? What benefit to the enduser is it
that all the BSDs use the same C compiler, or even the same programming
language(s) for the system?
