OpenBSD The OpenBSD team has released OpenBSD 4.5. There have been lots of changes and bug fixes, but it's a rather daunting list that doesn't really lend itself towards a summary (hint), but I guess if you use OpenBSD you are perfectly capable of figuring this out yourself. You can get the new release from the download page.

I wish they could co-operate either with Debian or Gentoo to have a fully working and easily manageable ports system. I hope.

If you want "easily manageable" which means a GUI then go use Debian / Gentoo. This OS isn't intended for people unwilling to use their brain or read a little documentation.

Exactly. I started learning on Mandrake Linux back in grade 9. I then proceeded to try Red Hat and then sticking with Debian for a while. My friend introduced me to OpenBSD 3.0 at first (just after pf was introduced and back when I thought the installer was really difficult. Ha!).

The amount I learnt from getting my hands in OpenBSD was astronomically more than any of those OS' and it clearly isn't an OS designed for someone who wants to take the "Easy Train". There are some other BSD derivatives out there (based on OpenBSD as well I believe) that do a better job for your average Joe Winston.

Why? What's wrong with the *BSD port system? The last thing I'd want to see is that monster dpkg shoving its way into *BSD systems as well, especially when *BSD already has a much faster and lighter package management system.

God no, I hope they never do. Ports kick apt in the nads and spits in portage's face.
