This is utter bullshit. Do you know how easy it is to connect to a WPA2 network with # ifconfig ? Do you know how easy it is to activate a proven secure httpd, named and other unix services including deployments such as access points and firewalls. Do you really believe iptables is easier than pf? Do you really think selinux is easy? Do you jump on every bandwagon like everyone else and now have all your tweets stored on the library of congress and all your information in the hands of facebook mark "they trust me, dumbfucks" zuckerberg? As Theo says, if you want something new and shiny off the shelf, go get it, but don't come crying later from this mentality of not knowing when to say, "wait maybe this isn't the best idea." What is so "new" that OpenBSD desperately needs? And why do you think they owe it to you? Since when has embracing the most recent release made your life easier or more secure? Would you believe a recent OpenSSH makes you more secure, because OpenBSD is the first to have it, always. Would a new pf make you more secure, because OpenBSD has it, always. What about ipsec, which OpenBSD was first to implement? I can't believe you were upvoted to 5.
