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.

Have you ever really used the system? Takes time to learn but it time well spent.

Package System is incredibly easy to use and has flavors for each package so you don't have to install unnecessary dependencies. Ports system is incredibly easy to use.

I can do Play Music, Watch Video, Use Skype, Browse the web, program etc etc etc. With no problems.

There isn't any pretty GUI wizards or any other fluff that gets in the way ... using the man pages properly and a bit of reading will let you configure the system correctly for whatever you wish to use it for.
