If you're concerned about security, then OpenBSD is for you. Period. All the other BSDs are secure too, but OpenBSD really shines. Also has a tight nit community. Works great on soekris embedded systems as firewalls!

I tried. I first downloaded the cd, which didn't boot on my old pentium. That's okay, I'll try the mini-inst. Also a failure. I then dded the floppies needed and installed it via ftp. Got it installed. Then I had _numerous_ and unique problems which could not be explained by people. I must have installed it five times just trying to get it to work right, to no avail. The install was nice though. I shouldn't really say this is a bad product, because it obviously works for many people. The only reason I could see someone using this over another BSD would be KDE (which I think you should be using linux for anyway). I've never had any problems with openbsd.

A lot of people don't like the Debian install, but I like it a lot. It's not pretty, at all, but it automatically boots into a menu driven interface, and has step by step install, with little tid bits of information just incase. Apt-get is by far the best part of Debian. You are able to upgrade all of your packages with a command as simple as "apt-get update". Gotta love ease of use. But SID crashed on me twice, for unknown reasons. It's fun, but stick to Woody or Sarge for now.
