Technically speaking NetBSD is Unix-like and you can get it from the official web site:
http://NetBSD.org/

Also, NetBSD 7 is coming out soon. The BETA builds are available from:
http://releng.NetBSD.org/
(under daily binary snapshots -> netbsd-7 -> date-stamp -> amiga)

There's INSTALL.html file explaining the process.

Thanks both. I didn't find any NetBSD youtube video with an amiga, and Mrs Beanbag I don't find any link to download in your link either.

Ah there they are.

I dropped by in their IRC channel a while ago asked them if they needed some help, idled for 1.5 months without a reply and left again, i thought it was a dead project tbh.

Thank you @strim. Yes, geniouses get misunderstood in many forums, what a pity.

But getting to have a clock I don't think it's such so great OS, or am I losing something?

It all depends on what you expect from an OS. NetBSD is a full-featured Unix-like OS, although of course Amiga hardware is providing some limitations as to what you can do with it. But no, clock is not the only app we have...

I guess gibs'es vid just wasn't showing off much of the possibilities. I should record something better one day .

For now just check out official NetBSD site to see what can you do with it (also wikipedia article might be a good introduction).

It's a bit off topic, but I've got to say that these last two days I've been trying Puppy (seems the fastest Linux) on my old Pentium III and it is as slow as Windows XP

Other than that, using another OS (even OS4) you always will have to emulate for gaming, so ....

AMIX won't run on an A4000, it's designed for the A3000 & A2500 exclusively.

I'll toss OpenBSD into the arena, although developement stopped at v3.2. It does support just about everything on the Amiga 4000. I've run it in WinUAE, it's nice but slowwww.

Yep. In my opinion we lose time trying anything but DOpus Magellan (open source), Workbench or Scalos. Aros will be another option in a near future.

Just hoping for a future NetBSD with FastATA support or I'll see if I can find some SCSI storage. Is there a cheap relatively modern solution I can hook up on the external scsi connector which is recognised by NetBSD?

I wouldn't count on that now... As far as I know, no other NetBSD developers have FastATA 4000. I do, but I don't want to spend any more time reverse engineering yet another Elbox device (I wrote FastATA 1200 and Mediator drivers, but it just takes too much time without any documentation).

Make them publish documentation, then I can write a driver. I already asked for it, but they ignore my emails.

Any SCSI hard disk or CD-ROM device connected to external SCSI connector should work with NetBSD. Keep in mind A3000 on-board SCSI controller has some purely hardware problems. See here.
