I'd like to add one thing to what Guillem said.  OpenBSD
is known for being secure (this is not just a kernel feature
as Guillem explained), but it has also contributed a number
of great ideas and projects to the free software community.

More often than not, these find their way to other systems
and in particular Debian GNU/kFreeBSD features the following
improvements of clear OpenBSD heritage:

- Packet Filter
- OpenSSH
- a free nve driver (OpenBSD project rewrote this driver which
  was previously a blob in FreeBSD)
