    The subject says it all. I was really hoping to see a 2.11 release. Be kind of cool since BSD2.11 is still activelly maintained!

    After buying CD sets, and using OpenBSD from 2.6 to 2.9, I'm afraid I've changed my mind about OpenBSD. Sure it may supposedly be secure remotely, by default, but you can make other BSD's just as secure. But with the other operating systems you don't get into pity parties on IRC and juvenile BBS's, and you don't rip out integral parts of the system to make childish points. You don't have people that act condescending 24/7. You don't have a forced release every six months, for the sole purpose of the founder being able to live thrifty. Goodbye OpenBSD. But don't worry, Linux will not be my refuge. Somewhere with more maturity?

    Why did people think that the next OpenBSD release would be 2.10? If you think Major.Minor.Minor in revision levels then OpeBSD 2.10 was released some years back.
    AS OpenBSD 2.1 ;-) OpenBSD has never used anything other than Major.minor. If we add one the to 9 in the minor field we have to carry and increase the Major field. Therefore 3.0. :-)
