OpenBSD Pre-orders for OpenBSD 4.0 are now available in the online store. Five architectures on three CDs in a soft-shell DVD case. Check out the highlights of OpenBSD 4.0. This new release adds support for many wireless chipsets, as well as support for the UltraSPARC III, and much, much more.

You can always switch to Fedora and get even the latest kernel updates within days of new releases. ;-)

WiFi works way better in Linux with Red Hat's work on HAL, D-Bus and Network Manager. John W. Linville, upstream wireless kernel subsystem maintainer has a branch in Fedora which tracks the latest wireless updates

So far OpenBSD has been the subject at hand, perhaps we should stick to it? Besides, OpenBSD has greater support for wireless cards than the Linux kernel does, and they're even open source instead of Binary HALs and daemons to play monkey in the middle with the hardware and operating system.
