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.

He doesn't show himself being a Linux advocate.
Most of them didn't know Theo at all.
And I think the security-conscious sysadmin points out an for him valid point:
Theo is a man that splits.
And not only Theo.
The overall tone in the newsgroups and mailing-lists is rather harsh and often unfriendly.
BUT:
Doesn't this fit into OpenBSD??
I think it fits.
The most "paranoid" operating system can't be developed by hippies.
If you don't have an "I don't care what you think" - attitude you are starting making compromises.
And this is a behaviour you didn't find in the OpenBSD camp(remember the ipfw fight).
