OpenBSD and the modern laptop

from the greybeards go modern dept.
Over at his blog, Undeadly co-editor Peter Hansteen describes the experience of installing OpenBSD-current on a new laptop.
The article, OpenBSD and the modern laptop, goes into some detail on the install procedure, and hits only minor snags even when using modern and recent additions such as UEFI boot.
The conclusion is that OpenBSD is well suited for laptop and desktop use, and things tend to just work.
On the other hand, we strongly suggest Peter posted the article before the contents of his home directory had actually been completely transferred. He's such a packrat.
