We are pleased to announce the official release of OpenBSD 6.3. This is our 44th release. We remain proud of OpenBSD's record of more than twenty years with only two remote holes in the default install.

As in our previous releases, 6.3 provides significant improvements, including new features, in nearly all areas of the system.

I still remember when that second hole appeared, so glad they've made it to the 20 year mark without any more. Seriously impressive stuff.

No. Not for anything made within the past decade.

You can get by on a 5 year old Radeon, or any fairly new Intel graphics.

If you want high-performance 3D graphics, OpenBSD is not the OS for you. If you want a highly robust, stable, and secure OS with excellent cross-platform support, then OpenBSD is among the best.

I'm not sure about OpenBSD (I use it on servers and laptops only, not on gaming desktops), but FreeBSD + the (proprietary) nvidia-driver for X provide excellent results for 3D gaming. This works with native, Linux, and "Windows" (via wine) games.

FreeBSD has support not OpenBSD.
