OpenBSD OpenBSD strives to be the most secure UNIX derivation. Design principles, such as code auditing, extensive use of encryption, and careful configuration choices, combine to ensure OpenBSD's secure by default philosophy holds true. This article gives you a close look at the operating system so secure that it was once banned for use in a DEF CON competition, where crackers go after each other's systems.

The "Linux is secure mantra" is kind of hollow with constant security advisories compared to OpenBSD & exploits which are possible on Linux ,OSX & Windows.

You are ignoring the context. The mantra you are talking about is just in relation to Windows. Im quite sure no one who knew what they were talking about was ever trying to suggust that it was perfect, or more secure than BSD.
