InfoWorld's Security Advisor columnist Roger A. Grimes says: "Kick off 2007 with a new, more secure operating system." Citing OpenBSD's code-auditing security process and its excellent security record, Grimes advises readers to give the system a try. Despite repeating some old canards about the "unfriendly" install, he notes favorably that "OpenBSD is shipped secure-by-default, with all non-essential services disabled. You won't find NFS, mountd, or Apache [httpd] enabled by default. The /bin and /sbin folders will be emptier than other Linux or BSD distros. Install OpenBSD and you can be assured that it doesn't default to an insecure state."
