So, if you're looking for a secure OS that is also functional (good hardware support), you're better of with Debian or FreeBSD.


I have found OpenBSD to have very good hardware support, especially in the NIC area. I use OpenBSD on some of my laptops and it supports more wireless cards than my Linux laptops. I use older laptops for my test servers because they give me that "rack" feeling (I even put them on a rack) without the price. They also use less power and keep from heating up my computer room.
