Linux During the roundtable discussion at LinuxCon this year, Linus Torvalds made some pretty harsh remarks about the current state of the Linux kernel, calling it "huge and bloated", and that there is no plan in sight to solve the problem. At the same time, he also explained that he is very happy with the current development process of the kernel, and that his job has become much easier.

And Linux (or NetBSD/FreeBSD) runs terribly much better on my quad core home machine than OpenBSD ever will.

And OpenBSD have terribly less security holes than Linux.

You can bash OpenBSD for SMP performance, but they can do the same with security. OpenBSD is a pioneer with a lot of security features that has been implemented in other OSes few years after.
