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.

There is a quote in chapter four of `Absolute OpenBSD: Unix for the Practical Paranoid` by Michael W. Lucas that I like. "Blowfish and penguin arguing over fridge space roommates most vexing".

I use both BSD and Linux. It really depends on what the customer wants. OpenBSD fits its roles extemely well, and, imagine this, even makes a great desktop.

I have found that 90% of Windump users, which is a huge group, could not backup up their systems and expect miracles, which we in the BSD, Linux, MacOSX, and *nix, perform daily for them, on their systems.

Keep up the excellent work OpenBSD and ignore all morons.
