OpenBSD

We are pleased to announce the official release of OpenBSD 5.4. This is our 34th release on CD-ROM (and 35th via FTP). We remain proud of OpenBSD's record of more than ten years with only two remote holes in the default install.

That track record remains impressive - no matter how often I see it.

It is great news and there is much about the project to like. The notion that a documentation flaw is as much a bug as a mistake in the program code gets seriously better as I get older.

Did look into configuring OpenBSD for secure web browsing - banking, etc. Whilst the operating system is pretty darn secure; the browsers [Chromium and Firefox] are still a couple of releases behind the OSX versions - so perhaps with overhanging security issues.

I deeply wish that Theo De Radt had sat down and convinced Mark Shuttleworth to do Ubuntu with OpenBSD ... the world would be a different place!
