Se ## Why OpenBSD? -OpenBSD ships with sensible and secure defaults. OpenBSD has excellent documentation: I can use the system to learn about the system instead of looking things up on half-baked, SEO-optimized, outdated articles. OpenBSD has straightforward and easy to manage system components (daemons, init system, updating, etc). OpenBSD doesn't randomly break or unexpectedly change things out from under you when there's an update (they let you know about changes well in advance of you needing to upgrade). +> Get used to minimalism and security: componentised, privilege-separated binaries in file-system jails.

OpenBSD has excellent documentation: I can use the system to learn about the system instead of looking things up on half-baked, SEO-optimized, outdated articles. OpenBSD has straightforward and easy to manage system components (daemons, init system, updating, etc). OpenBSD doesn't randomly break or unexpectedly change things out from under you when there's an update (they let you know about changes well in advance of you needing to upgrade). OpenBSD ships with a set of useful, well-written programs that make setting up a server a breeze (httpd, acme-client, relayd, etc.). To summarize: OpenBSD isn't a pain.
