This is awesome. I hope we're not going to see a lot of the religious debate antics like "Linux Sux and BSD Rulez" that pop up places.
I've been into OpenBSD for a while now and could lend my humble offerings to the mix if anyone wants. Things to remember with OBSD:
- If you haven't read the man page, you haven't tried to solve the problem yet. OpenBSD puts a lot of focus on making sure the man page is there, that it is correct, and that it is thorough. 80% of the questions that come up will be in the manpages. For the other % you can't get out of there, RTFM at www.openbsd.org/faq/
or look at the mailing list archives at http://www.monkey.org/cgi-bin/wilma/openbsd-misc
- BSD isn't Linux. It doesn't use SYSV, so you won't find an easy script to manage services in /etc/rc.d/init.d/ . You won't find an RPM, instead you'll use a package or maybe build from a port. You won't find LKMs.
- Security is the main focus, not a by-product.
- Development is constant and ongoing. There is a new release every 6 months. In the meantime, there is constant change going on in the -current tree, so if something needs to be fixed, it will be fixed soon. If you have a problem, try updating, you might be surprised.
Anyways, lets have fun with this! Peace.
