OpenBSD

We are pleased to announce the official release of OpenBSD 5.4. This is our 34th release on CD-ROM (and 35th via FTP). We remain proud of OpenBSD's record of more than ten years with only two remote holes in the default install.

That track record remains impressive - no matter how often I see it.

You're in luck, then. Both HW support and the overall quality of Lenovo dropped down, down, down over the last years ... Lenovo is no longer the brand I use or recommend to others. It sucks as hell and it's simply the HW of very poor quality, no matter which model you choose. All of the 4 ThinkPads I bought recently HAD DEAD PIXELS or other stupid defects. ALL. Every single one of it. Damn you, AO Optronics, damn you, Lenovo for choosing such a crappy panel manufacturer. You supposed to be a high-quality brand, and look at you know ... you're no better than Acer or BenQ in terms of HW quality [even though BenQ doesn't make any notebooks].

Now, I'm not saying other manufacturers are perfect. But the fact of the matter is that some of them have still better quality, or - at least - they sell notebooks with GOOD panels [and yes - panel is actually the window to your goddamn notebook and the whole digital world, so having it defected is just ridiculously stupid. I'm more inclined to accept some flaws in a way the keyboard is manufactured, or some other minor flaws like worse quality of touchpad material, but come on ... a panel? It's the most expensive part of the notebook and still ... they're not passing the quality test]

Out of curiousity, which brand of laptops do you use and recommend these days?
