I've been a FreeBSD user for a while now and I love it. I'm running 4.10
and plan on upgrading soon. I'm also an OpenBSD user but I tend to use
it for firewalls and routers. I setup Apache and Subversion on OpenBSD
3.6 last week. This is the first time I have ever done anything other
then a firewall on OpenBSD.
I'm thinking about using OpenBSD on more servers. Before I do that I
would like to know what people on the list think.
Why I want to switch to OpenBSD.
1. OpenBSD has good security
3. Firewall and routing support is built in
Why I use FreeBSD
2. Ports tree has a lot of software
3. I can upgrade to new versions
Should I make the switch from FreeBSD to OpenBSD for my servers?
