OpenBSD "Yesterday OpenBSD, the proactively secure Unix-like operating system, released version 3.8, featuring several improvements to networking, RAID management tools, and increased security. At openbsd.org you can download installation files or order the official three-disc CD set, which supports 16 processor architectures out of the box. I took this new release as an opportunity to perform my first ever OpenBSD install." Read more here.

"But having to setup X manually, it is something that has to be done just that: manually"

You dont have to set up anything manually for X. Autodetect works like a charm in the majority of cases.
Also, if you cant figure out how you configure X OpenBSD is not the desktop OS for you.

"Server OS or not, this is 2005 and OpenBSD should go with the times."

Nonsense. Servers dont need X and if the way OpenBSD do things doesnt suit you then it's simply not for you.
Alternatively, if you really want a graphical X config (or a "better" installer or whatever) write one yourself. Noone's going to do it for you.

"BSDs, Arch/Slackware and some other old stylers should do too. It is called care for your users."

More nonsense. Obviously the users and maintainers of these systems *likes* it this way. If you want the graphical eye candy and installers there are plenty of distros for you. If you dont there are also distros for you.
It's called choice.
