"BSD is for people who love Unix..."

The OpenBSD project produces a FREE, multi-platform 4.4BSD-based UNIX-like operating system. Our efforts emphasize portability, standardization, correctness, proactive security and integrated cryptography. OpenBSD supports binary emulation of most programs from SVR4 (Solaris), FreeBSD, Linux, BSD/OS, SunOS and HP-UX. (taken from the OpenBSD Project homepage)


OpenBSD 3.8 began shipping Nov. 1, 2005 and contains many improvements. It can be installed freely over FTP and HTTP using only a boot floppy, by cdrom, or by other options.
