NetBSD -Current binaries
#6
I didn't run into that issue, but when I do, I just make a copy with the alternate name.

Perhaps what you might want to do is just install 9.1, and upgrade it to 10 when the day comes. I've been very successful updating NetBSD, I've never run into any issues. The only thing I think you'll be missing is the firmware for the inbuilt WiFi, which doesn't really work anyway. I have 9.1 on an SD card, and use it quite a bit, but not always only because it's so slow on my SD card. One of these days I'll copy that to the eMMC.

One advantage of running 9.1 without the Wi-Fi firmware is that I don't have to remember to turn the privacy switch off and back on if I use Debian for something.
