A lot different.
It is actually used on several NAS boxes I have. There isn't a full install--no GUI, very limited userspace, but the way of thinking about *everything* is completely strange (relative to The Unix Way). I suppose this is mostly due to lack of the common userspace tools that I'm used to, but even so...
