OpenBSD O'Reilly interviewed 27 OpenBSD developers to present the new release. They discussed buffer cache improvements, the new malloc(), the work to make the math library more C99 compliant, what is new in the SCSI area, crypto support for softraid, a lot of fundamental work happened in PF, a new tool to merge configuration files during upgrades, the status of OpenCVS, some cool features of OpenSSH 5.1, the initial support for USB webcams, the never-ending work on improving and extending the sensors framework, and more.

Not always, but when I do, I take my time to investigate alternatives that might bring me more for my time and money.

It just seem pointless to me to reinvent the same old wheel, especially when there are ways to build newer and better wheels nowadays. That said, the OpenBSD team is completely free to do whatever they want: it's their project and it's not like it's gonna change my life.
