Official OpenBSD 6.1 CD - There's only One!
Contributed by phessler on Fri May 5 07:11:10 2017 (GMT)
from the not-available-in-stores dept.

OpenBSD 6.1 was announced as the first release with no CD available for purchase.

Now it turns out that in fact, exactly one CD set was made, and it can be yours if you are the successful bidder in the auction that ends on May 13, 2017.

Bob Beck (beck@) writes in to tell us

An "Artisanally Made" collector's edition has been constructed for OpenBSD 6.1 - Featuring artwork actually drawn by Theo, (He took *lessons* to do this!) a short Haiku on the cover, and the 3 CD release set. It's up for auction on ebay to the highest bidder.

The CD set is hand made and signed by Theo de Raadt.

Click through to the auction to see some more pictures of the CD set!

As with previous OpenBSD auctions, if you are not the successful bidder, we would like to encourage you to donate the equivalent of you highest bid to the project.

  As there were no CD sets available, i made up the 50 for a donation to the project. Sadly, i won't get tax deduction for this as i had with the CD sets ;)

  The interesting fact is that by betting on that one, you will have an OpenBSD CD set that even Theo doesn't have.

Happy betting :)

  Congratz on security no one can afford. Not having a hard-copy means the data can be altered without any real verification. While it may seem like paranoia, it is actually about guarantees, and the future has very little for you.

  I wonder if the winner will auction the set again for the project at the next release. And so on.
