Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y "A senior OpenBSD developer has complained on a mailing list that upstream vendors of free and open source software are adding in changes without any thought of whether downstream users could adapt to the change. Marc Espie said this would hurt smaller players by not allowing them to keep up with the changes. Basically what is happening is that numerous changes are being made to Linux and smaller projects like OpenBSD cannot keep up with the changes. And, according to Espie, not all these changes are strictly necessary."

Laughable, one could as easily say Linux is a much better server, firewall, and server than fugly, old and slow OpenBSD.

To be frank, anyone who complains that a server isn't pretty clearly isn't the sort of person who should be giving advice on which enterprise OS to run on production systems.
