If Theo wants people to take OpenBSD seriously, he should stop making pointless comments like this one. If you really care about security and open source, you help anyone using your software (if that anyone has done nothing to break the licensing of course). If you let personal grudges stand in the way of seeing the bigger picture (*cough*Amiga), then you have no place in the corporate world-- or in any world, for that matter.

That's silly. Sun forked the code, and it's not OpenSSH at this point. He has no obligation to help them out or to notify them of any problems they may have caused with their changes. He already helped plenty by providing OpenSSH for free. It would be nice if they reciprocated and paid for some airfare and perhaps sent a few pieces of hardware his way. They choose not to, which seems pretty shitty and/or childish in it's own right.

Again, I ask that anyone that really has so much crap to sling about Theo should immediately cease using OpenSSH in protest. ;)
