OpenBSD "OpenBSD 5.0 has been published, six months after the release of version 4.9. The OpenBSD project's newest release of the free BSD based UNIX-like operating system includes a number new and updated drivers, performance improvements and new features. OpenBSD 5.0 includes the GNOME 2.32.2, KDE 3.5.10 and Xfce 4.8.0 desktop environments. It also contains a number of new and updated packages including versions 3.5.19, 3.6.18 and 5.0 of the Firefox web browser, PHP 5.2.17 and 5.3.6, LibreOffice 3.4.1, and Chromium 12. The release includes September's release of OpenSSH 5.9." GNOME 2 you say? Huh. Interesting.

I think the openbsd webpage also deserve a makeover.

I disagree. If it's not broken, don't fix it.

Their site is very usable, much more then those of most Linux distros. And it demonstrates the project's philosophy: simplistic, informative, with easy access to documents and all the possibly distracting features are cut off.

I think those who prefer fancier sites are not the target auditory of the project.

And keep in mind it's also a barrier-free presentation, so blind users can view the site and navigate it using a Braille readout or a voice synthesizer. This increases the target audience.

Form and content go hand in hand here. :-)
