  What can be done to make OpenBSD even better? The lines below are from the conclusions page of the presentation.

-Bugs are stll easy to find in [*BSD] kernels. Even OpenBSD.

-Varying level of quality depending on age and who wrote it

--Most consistent quality was observed with OpenBSD

The maintainers of various BSDs should talk more among each other

--Several bugs in one were fixed in the other

--OpenBSD expired proc pointer in midiioctl() fixed in NetBSD

--NetBSD signedness bug in ac97_query_devinfo() fixed in OpenBSD
