from the what's-it-take dept.
"I love OpenBSD and have a lot of fun learning stuff on it, but every resource on the net I see for it is on firewalling, gateway applications, and securing a site. I just use it as a desktop OS. Its small, fairly fast and runs on my hardware (Sparc). I play games, surf the net, do the chat thing (BitchX, micq, tik, gaim), and everything else a typical M$ lusr would do. Is this a waste of what OpenBSD is for? I don't own an ISP, my company refuses to listen to my suggestion of using OpenBSD for their firewall, and all I do is putz around on it. I do pay for my CDs and have bought shirts to support the project so its not like I'm a total slug. Anyone else running OpenBSD just 'coz its cool? "
I sat on this and thought about it for awhile, and decided that it was a good question to ask after all. Is using OpenBSD as a desktop OS defeating the purpose?
