    Any trained monkey can install OpenBSD on a machine and pkg_add {nmap, snort, dsniff, etc} and there are enough tutorials on the net for setting up and configuring these tools. Paying some company for hourly updates for snort signatures seems rather ridiculous.

    The real value is having a security administrator who can configure the software intelligently and use the results from the software to effectively secure a network. I'm sorry folks but I haven't seen anyone able to package that in a box and shrinkwrap it.

    Incidentally, does anyone know if this company has made any meaningful contributions back to the OpenBSD project?

      Well, it's a pegasos box, so to the extent that it's their open archetecture box/cpu yes they have. I assume they helped a bunch with the openbsd/pegasosppc support at a minimum. Adn the fact that they are making they platform to begin with is cool
      so yeah
      this is just a tiny sub project they seem to have going utilizing openbsd and their cpu

      the regular package is usually a dual boot of morphos and debian linux

      seems that openbsd pegasos support has matured enough, probably thanks to them a bunch

      Here is a company that is openly advertising that they are offering a product based upon OpenBSD, and your response is just a sour rant.

    After looking at the images I must say, there is something really interesting to be seen. The C within that kind of diamond I have seen on another page already:

    on the website that sells the CrunchBox!

    Well what means this? Does the firm of John Draper have a new product? Or what or why?

    Just a few lines to start the rumours :)
