Making cracks at OpenBSD (with FUD) is not appropriate. Blanket statements
like that do more harm than good, especially when they do not apply. 

Please lets keep cracking on others off the list. Lets try to keep this
somewhat appropriate :)

If you (second person plural) have done any kernel programming and auditing
with linux and openbsd kernels, you would appreciate the beauty, simplicity,
and correctness that exists in the openbsd kernel code, which is quite the
opposite in Linux, though most everything "works". 

Every OS has it's own things it is good at, and it may fit some more than 
others, just have to be the judge of what is good for your needs/wants and
then choose the best choice. Sometimes it is Linux, sometimes it is not.

No reason to trash others because it is not your cup of tea :)
