OpenBSD OpenBSD is a name synonymous with security, having earned the respect and adoration of security-concious sysadmins everywhere. OpenBSD is used in data centers all over the world, is the basis for several security products (from OpenBSD's site), and is even the basis for Microsoft's Services For Unix.

I ran OpenBSD (i386) for a bit to learn the system and its (hopefully the "its vs. it's" guy notices I used its correctly) security principles. And it was wonderful. Then I started doing some real work (e.g. MIT Kerberos) and things turned on me. e.g. kernel panics.

I wasn't about to become an OpenBSD kernel debugger so I switched to Slackware instead.

Cheers
