OpenBSD quickly became my favorite OS. I hope it is not just a "summer love" tho. The only thing preventing me from switching to it is a large ext4 home partition

I'm not ready to completely switch from Slackware to OpenBSD. Lilo sure plays nice with OpenBSD.

Code:
# Linux bootable partition config begins
image = /boot/vmlinuz
  root = /dev/sda2
  label = Linux
  read-only
# Linux bootable partition config ends
other = /dev/sda4
label = OpenBSD
table = /dev/sda

My desktop needs are very basic so I can migrate just fine. I really enjoyed OpenBSF and tinkering with it. The high quality code and high security made me like it even more. As I post this I am moving the files on my ext4 partition, getting ready for a migration.

You're understating what true love is. Welcome into the club

You can say that, indeed. Off all the BSD's NetBSD works the best for me. I tried OpenBSD but I couldn't get X up and running, somehow I missed a videodriver. DragonflyBSD segfaulted constantly. No daubt they are all great in their own field, but I got NetBSD installed without a hitch. And I'm using it for several years now. I think I got lucky with it. NetBSD is extremely stable, safe and easy to configure. Kudoo's to the developers!

I use screenfetch-dev. By the way, the fonts look rather ugly under Firefox, any tips on how to improve it?

Adapted my desktop wallpaper to underline my previous statement. No obsessed fan though. I bear a weakness for Slackware and AntiX also.

Screenfetch it is just for the ascii work, I use srot for taking screenshots too.

Does anyone knows how to change the icon theme? I can do it under xfce session but not under cwm, I've put the "Faenza" folder under ~/.icons and it works fine under xfce session.
