    Six months after OpenBSD 5.0 was released, OpenBSD 5.1 is now available with a modest number of changes...

    • Chromium 18


    So in Linux we have the latest and greatest of everything, BSD as always is 10 years behind in everything they produce.
    Don't compare OpenBSD to your average bleeding edge linux distribution, they have totally different target groups.
    OpenBSD is probably the best at what they do - Security.

    NetBSD don t like users.They like to port everything to a toaster
    Only FBI users like OpenBSD
    DragonFly is good only for clustering.


    FreeBSD is the only system for casual users. And still they don't have a good rendering infrastructure.

    There are only one good BSD distribution .It's PCBSD.I think they need to port all infrasctructure (package management) to Linux .

    Well... don't know why you quoted me as your response had nothing to do with what I said.
    I kind of agree, but if OpenBSD is good enough for "FBI users" they are probably on target.

    Isn't UMS considered a security issue?

    Ok, so now they are 20 years behind and not 10 as you said in the previous post... 20 years.. hum lets see... No they are not 20 years behind when I look at the package list (not 10 either), not even close.
    But that is really besides the point, they are not paranoid about security - it is what they do. It is not an operating system for the average person who want a cool desktop to install.
    It has a specific puropse and it does that very well.

    Just imagine all the the crap that exists in yours (and mine) linux system.

    At least Linux developers admit a security-related bug is a security problem and fix it, and assign it a CVE number. None of this OpenBDSM "Reliability patch" nonsense.

    I like that my BSDs let me do system upgrades without really worrying about all my shit not working anymore. Linux is total shit for this, BSD I might not have many choices for wifi, but when I update I can expect them to work. Linux every few kernel updates my wifi might fail to work correctly.

    BSD sucks for being behind? I had better working wifi on windows 2000, then modern linux. I also had a better graphics stack in windows 98 then your living in the past shitty linux.
