OpenBSD Theo de Raadt has announced the release of OpenBSD 5.2. The OpenBSD 5.2 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.

Just curious...

...what are your interests then?

Clearly (based on your articles) you have interests in Microsoft/Windows, Apple/MacOS X, Linux, Google/Android, and BeOS/Haiku. Oh, and software patents... and can't forget CDE. Which, combined, is seemingly almost everything, right there. But apparently OpenBSD is not in your interests, and I recall reading a semi-recent article where you mentioned your inexperience with Solaris (so I guess there's another). But based on the fact that you post on a site called "OSNews," I would expect a broader OS interest.

Not that I'm complaining that you lack interest of OpenBSD or Solaris or whatever else (honestly, while I appreciate OpenBSD I don't currently have a whole lot of interest in it myself, or any of the BSDs for that matter, and Oracle is enough to turn me away from Solaris). I'm just curious what are your primary interests, since they not only seem varied--but pretty specific too. To be fair, it's pretty damn hard to both learn and be interested in almost *everything*, but I'm just curious what actually are your primary interests.

You may wish to qualify that request with "in regard to operating systems" else you will end up with everything from rainbow farting ponies to Left for Dead 2 to Fiona Apple to Hangul.

And that's just the stuff he tells us about here and on Google+, there's no telling what else may come out. ;)
