 OpenBSD - For Your Eyes Only

"Given this admirable record, why doesn't everybody immediately run out and install OpenBSD? After all, you can hardly beat the price (free download). Unfortunately, though OpenBSD is free, it does come with a cost. Running an ultra-secure operating system can be a bit of work, and OpenBSD doesn't expend much effort at being user-friendly. In other words, don't expect a point-and-click paradise - OpenBSD will exercise your Unix geek skills more than the typical Linux distro. Indeed, even FreeBSD (which is decidedly not for wimps) strives to be much less user-hostile. That having been said, if you've gained some experience at Unix-style system administration, OpenBSD is definitely worth a look."
