Original OSNews Interviews A few weeks ago, we asked for the OSNews community to help with some questions we were going to ask Aaron Griffin from the Arch Linux team, and the response was glorious and somewhat phenomenal. We added those questions to our own and sent them on over, and then we were surprised by receiving not only Aaron Griffin's responses but answers from various individuals from the team.

I too use OpenBSD and find its quality and simplicity refreshing. The tradeoff one makes (for "general" desktop use) is that the ports aren't updated for a release (or, as of late, -stable) due to the fact that the devs there prefer to focus their time updating the ports for -current. In addition, the OpenBSD approach to security, openness of all code, etc. puts some apps out of reach (wine, high-performance VMMs, some drivers,...). If you need those things, OpenBSD is not really an option.


Maybe because it's development model is more server oriented than desktop. Want to run a BSD desktop, go FreeBSD.
