    Cripes. I /just/ installed 4.4.

    Admittedly, I often put it off because of the half a day of tweaking it takes to get everything right. This time around I used sysmerge for the first time. Made everything a whole lot easier.

    Maybe I can run 4.5 the same year it's released...

      why not install the 4.5-snapshot *today* and do more testing? Although that should have happened 4 weeks ago...

      I've had my 4.4 CDs since November and I've still not got round to using them!

      In fact my main server is still running 3.7 (or is it 3.6?) - I keep meaning to, but I just can't afford the downtime to update it. Then again, if it's not broken...

        This way you neglect all the openbsd team's work...

          I'm sure they're crying about all the neglect. Why don't you switch to Windows Server 2008, or do you choose to neglect all the Microsoft team's work too?

          I'm impressed that you manage to take an innocent comment about not having the time to update a server into an attack on the whole OBSD development team!

          How exactly does your mind work???

      Cripes, I just install FreeBSD 7.1, on a Dell Inspiron 8600. Not fun. X can crash, and other poor attention to details, compared to OpenBSD.

      Thankfully, OpenBSD 4.2,3,4 all work on the ACPI 8600, although the battery time estimation with dual batteries is really off, it goes from 50% to 7% on a steady state discharge.

      OpenBSD really helps productivity, no linux redo everything to get a good system, and better than FreeBSDs implement too much with some sore spots. A thanks to the OpenBSD team for attention to detail, and taking pride in their work.

      FreeBSD geli disk encryption system was the impulse to try 7.1, and OpenBSD softraid is still one disk experimental.

      Looking forward to playing with experimental softraid crypto in OpenBSD 4.5.

    The copyright on the lower bottom on undeadly needs to be modified to 2009. Currently it says:

    Just thought I'd mention it since people are bumping up versions.
