Security is the business of *BSD and if yes almost every application works like a charm.

Security is certainly the business of OpenBSD. How is security any more important to the the other BSD flavors than the various linux flavors?

>Security is certainly the business of OpenBSD

Security is a business of the other BSD too. If you want to see the difference have a look at Linux kernel releases or Linux distro release, they are always full of bugs and this isn't the business of *BSD!

*Release Engineering* is something Linux doesn't even know. Linux even hasn't got a proper documentation or stable ABI. It's ridiculous to try a comparison at all. Linux is full of hype, FUD, hacks to "prove" peaks in performance and a massive lack of quality and reliability. But it's the chosen pet of the media family, so "BSD is dying" since 1977 :o)
