    Phoronix: OpenBSD 5.1 Released

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

    ...and OBSD 5.2 will be out 6 months after 5.1

    ... so that way, we can just cut-n-paste all of this same utterly "useless-immature-crap" from this thread, into that one.

    It depends on your needs. In some cases it's not bloated at all and in some others it is.

    You'll probably be more comfortable with Debian, RHEL or Ubuntu, because they're not rolling releases and you don't have to pay as much attention when you upgrade system. In rolling releases configuration may change. I like Arch as much as Ubuntu, but I was just using it on desktop.

    Yes, I have found the answer: don't use libc and code in assembler!

    Not much old, KDE 3.5.10, which was released in August 2008. Nearly 4 years, but no, is not old.

    They don't even pickup Trinity which offers a fixed version of 3.5.x series (currently 3.5.13).
    Gnome is not that old, but have been unsupported for a while too (more than a year).

    One of the things I learned in school about security is to keep your software up to date. And surely they don't.
    Most OpenBSD users use other DE's. Also DE doesn't pose very high security threat.

    I want to use same OS for server and desktop.
    All web browsers are bloated, because web standards are bloated. And I hope wayland won't be bloated, but maybe i'm to optimistic.
    I actually don't need acceleration for my desktop use.
