It's nice to be able to get a bit of insight into how the inner circle of development on OpenBSD works. I can definitely understand where they get their security-strong reputation given the projects general distrust of it's own code. I particularly enjoyed reading his comments recuarding his dislike of Sun and their shady business. As far as drivers go, I hope they keep pushing just as hard for vendor documentation, although I doubt there is little to wory about as they seem pretty committed. And congrats on the fantastic job finishing the NVidia Ethernet driver, and a good driver at that. I'm looking forward for 3.9
