    i want to give it a try but it looks not easy : it says that cd1 and cd2 are needed to install but the files are not easy to find .
    their logo looks like ftp files [ me think the ftp://ftp.fr.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD/5.0/i386/ or ftp://ftp.fr.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD/5.0/amd64/ show files of isos but not the isos having them all : CD1:5.0/i386/INSTALL.i386 , CD2:5.0/amd64/INSTALL.amd64
    they should use torrents and dvd-iso format for quick and easy setup 4 nooobs like me ;']

      From ftp://ftp.fr.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD.../INSTALL.i386:

      Code:
      install50.iso	The i386 boot and installation CD-ROM image,
      		which contains the base and X sets, so that install
      		or upgrade can be done without network connectivity.
      So just get install50.iso for your platform and install it (try it in a virtual machine).

      I suggest that you read the FAQ: http://openbsd.org/faq/index.html.

          Chromium 12 was new when the packages for 5.0 were built back in August. There are not enough contributors to keep ports in -stable up to date, so you have to follow -current/snapshots to get the latest ports. This is not recommended for beginners! OpenBSD is probably not the best desktop-system, but it suits me well for programming, writing latex, reading pdfs and stuff.

            How do you read PDFs?
