OpenBSD Theo de Raadt has announced the release of OpenBSD 5.1. The OpenBSD 5.1 release page has a detailed list of all changes and improvements. As always, I would love for someone to write proper items about OpenBSD releases - it's outside my interests and cursory glances don't do it justice.

For bigger generalistic projects FreeBSD and GNU/Linux are better options.


Can you explain your arguments?

Yeap. Support for enterprise hardware (hba and multipath drivers) is very limited in OpenBSD.

OpenBSD I/O performance is bad and SMP isn't stellar.

PS: I hate to argument against OpenBSD... but you have to use the right tool for the right job.
