    Phoronix: DragonFlyBSD Switches Over To LibreSSL By Default

    DragonFlyBSD is now the latest operating system that has decided to switch from OpenSSL to LibreSSL by default...

    I do not know this Mr. Libre, but he is kicking Mr. Open's ass hard!

      All they had to do was fix the heartbleed problem...
      Now M$ and bunch other companies dumped millions on the OpenSSL project.
      Bottom line: we a well funded project that everyone is leaving for an underfunded newer project...

      Not the FOSS best moment.

        fixed.

          Last BSD? FreeBSD shipped OpenSSL for the 11 release and NetBSD will also ship OpenSSL.

            Probably meant "latest". It's following the footsteps of TrueOS.

              That underfunded newer 'project' clearly has a better track record at getting their shit done right.

                I thought OpenSSL had other issues that made the fork viable?

                  I'm surprised by the negativity on this. LibreSSL is a good thing and everyone should switch to it, the reasons being OpenSSL had to assume that the OS provides nothing and so they implement a great deal that normal operating systems today provide such as random etc. It's a better model to have the OS provide such things in their own way. A great deal of the security improvements in LibreSSL have been as a result of simply deleting old and obsolete code. As a general rule you can trust OpenBSD to get it right on matters of security (at the cost of everything else naturally). M$ can pump their money as hard as they want.. doesn't mean they can make a secure project.

                    Maybe.
                    We're they that big deal breakers to justify it? Who knows...
