Great to see another quality release, right on schedule. The artwork for this release is also top-notch, definitely worth ordering the CD set for.
This is my first serious attempt at using OpenBSD in years, but I’m quite surprised by how well my X60s is supported. Out of the box, everything works, except for wireless which I figured out after about 10 minutes of reading manpages. Suspend/resume is instant, and faster than Windows (pretty much the standard for HW support). I’m seriously impressed. Good job, now I have to figure out how to get Opera.
