OpenBSD "OpenBSD 5.0 has been published, six months after the release of version 4.9. The OpenBSD project's newest release of the free BSD based UNIX-like operating system includes a number new and updated drivers, performance improvements and new features. OpenBSD 5.0 includes the GNOME 2.32.2, KDE 3.5.10 and Xfce 4.8.0 desktop environments. It also contains a number of new and updated packages including versions 3.5.19, 3.6.18 and 5.0 of the Firefox web browser, PHP 5.2.17 and 5.3.6, LibreOffice 3.4.1, and Chromium 12. The release includes September's release of OpenSSH 5.9." GNOME 2 you say? Huh. Interesting.

OpenBSD guys are a bunch of traitors

They are a bunch of traitors to the Free Software movement.

They prefer to use GPLed software as little as possible, they prefer to release software under BSD license, not GPL v3, which is very wrong.

They also prefer to use the term "Open Source" not "Free Software", which is very wrong also. See here: http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/open-source-misses-the-point.html

All people should free themselves by using one of the variants of the GNU Operating System (which is the only Free Software OS known to man) such as GNU/Linux.

I wouldn't touch OpenBSD (or FreeBSD, or NetBSD) with a ten foot pole. I care too much about my freedom.
