OpenBSD As mentioned in the release announcement: "Many people have received their 4.6 CDs in the mail by now, and we really don't want them to be without the full package repository. We are pleased to announce the official release of OpenBSD 4.6. This is our 26th release on CD-ROM (and 27th via FTP). We remain proud of OpenBSD's record of more than ten years with only two remote holes in the default install." I really want news like this on the front page, but sadly, the long list of improvements makes no sense to me - I don't know what's important and what isn't. If someone can provide a nice readable summary of the most important improvements, I'll include it to the item and place it on the front page. There we are.

Of course you can use OpenBSD for desktop, but sometimes you'll get the feeling of "Linux (over) ten years ago".

IMHO Linux is much better for the desktop than any of the xBSD systems, and if you need "something Unix-like" for your desktop - you'll be much more pleased with Linux. Why do you want to switch, anyway? You can always choose "less bloated" distro, like Slackware or Gobo - keeping all Linux' advantages: many drivers, many different filesystems available to choose from, full internationalization, etc. etc.
