Microsoft has become OpenBSD's first-ever "Gold" contributor with sending this BSD operating system project somewhere between $25k and $50k USD.

For OpenBSD's 2015 fundraising, Microsoft made a "significant finanacial donation" to mark them in the gold level, in the tens of thousands of dollars. Gold isn't the top-level amount but there's also platinum ($50~100k) and Irdium ($100~250k).

Microsoft reportedly made this sizable donation over their decision to start including SSH support on Windows.
