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.

I firmly believe that the Spartan installer cuts OpenBSD's market share to about 1/10 of what it could be. A pity - it's a good OS in many ways.

I agree with you.It's a nobrainer to secure an OS with so little installed by default.Lets see if they could manage to keep the overall security as high as it is now, with a average desktop install.

A good GUI installer (fedora,opensuse) although i'm capable of doing everything from the cli makes me in my humble opinion more productive.Especially when making my raid partions,logical volumes,setting strides,etc.Why should i type a lot uneeded when the routine is a few clicks away?That doesn't make the cli less usefull at all,i still consider it my best friend so to speak.
