anyone here actively develop software on OpenBSD? how do you fair?

Ryan Walker
Ryan Walker

i'm using it to learn C

pledge is neat i guess

sometimes when i'm not sure of how to do something i actually look through the openbsd source code

What's the difference between BSD and other distros?

That sets it aside?

Brayden Hill

Just switch to linux already

Evan Nguyen

BSD is not a Linux distro, if that's what you're implying.

You're a persistent little shit, aren't you?

Ok, i'm still a Windowsfag OP.

Convince me why i should run BSD and i don't give a shit about muh games, not the reason why i still use Windows

Christopher Allen

Thanks for the bump

I actually like FreeBSD tho. I think it has the potential to compete with Linux!

OpenBSD is garbage.

kek, sure thing bud

You don't like it when you get the chance to bump your thread while debunking me?
I thought we were friends ;_;

I'd rather the thread die than have you show up.

OpenBSD is well designed and contains great security features. It handles what 90% of Linux users need and provides extra benefit on top of that.

A nice full-featured base system with X, a couple window managers, the pf firewall, lots of nicely designed servers like the httpd webserver and OpenSMTPD mail server. System configuration files that are easy to read and modify.

Clear, comprehensive manpages and a great FAQ on the website. No need to google and trawl old forums and blogs to get something working, because the documentation is always up to date and actively maintained.

What you don't get in the base system, you can get from packages if you really need to. Base system programs use techniques like pledge, privilege separation, and fork+exec to be more secure. Other security features work both for the base system and installed packages: stack protector, ASLR, separate users for each daemon, W^X enforcement, actual random number generation, and so on.

And basically a very limited software support

will openbsd support wayland once it's matured?

Nice, will install freebsd later

Have a dess dess, good user

Christian James

Probably.

Freedesktop made it hard enough to support Xorg though. They switched to a GNU build system, hence why the OpenBSD people had to do Xenocara.

Parker Wilson

Probably at some point, but it might lag Linux a little. OpenBSD software tends to be up to date most of the time but not always. GNOME, XFCE, Firefox, Chrome, etc are all current, but KDE is an old version, for example.

SysVR4 >>>>> BSD

Cameron Gray

reminder that BSD introduced stuff like vi and more

Can ports look as good as portage?

Nathan Collins

OH wow! And now a SysV is giving you Dtrace and ZFS.

Jackson Fisher

implying SysVR4, especially the one in Solaris, isn't pretty much BSD

Jaxson Perry

SysVR4 is pretty much BSD
retard alert. There's no reason to run BSD since Illumos exists.

Hudson Bell
Hudson Bell

there is one

illumos is even deader

Noah Russell

REM
not RAM
which is what you need

Aiden Peterson

illumos dead
na. Joyent even runs a pkgsrc repo with 17,000 binary packages.

Carter Turner
Carter Turner

well ok then

OBSCURE maybe

there's nothing wrong with that either, i think every Unix and Unix-like have a right to exist as long as they bring something to the table

i still want to see a complete GNU operating system even if i know it would be fucking awful

Cooper Perry

*BSD is deprecated.

github.com/fuchsia-mirror

Landon Gutierrez

Fuchsia sounds good but I doubt it will be in a state comparable to the BSDs anytime soon. If the things it does are actually decent then the BSD devs will probably incorporate parts of it into their OSes. I doubt the BSD devs would ever give up because another OS exists.

Hudson Ramirez
Hudson Ramirez

Yeah, you're right. Theo de Raadt's basement has way more development resources that fucking Alphabet, the world's largest corporation. Thank you for correcting the record.

Owen Wilson

How (where) do you access the source code from?

Andrew Taylor
Andrew Taylor

Honestly what is it with the aggressive shilling of this? Is it parody?

Justin Gray

sndio is so much better than PulseAudio or most other APIs. Mainly because it's so much like OSS.

Isaiah Harris
Isaiah Harris

i just clone the CVS tree

if you can't/don't want to do that, just google "cvsweb openbsd"

Parker Martinez
Parker Martinez

isn't that the point?

i think sndio even might have oss emulation

Alexander Wilson

BSD is a parody of UNIX.

CVS

What year is it?

Landon Young
Landon Young

You'll never even be able to compete with *BSD, 40BMI manlet

Nolan Ward
Nolan Ward

i'm just as confused as you are on the choice of keeping CVS but hey it works

it's just slow and confusing to use

Michael Adams
Michael Adams

oh and at least they don't use fucking svn

doesn't freebsd use that to this day?

Charles Butler
Charles Butler

Thanks user. I've heard from more than one place that the sourcecode was actually a pleasure to read, which sounded funny at first.

Jose Long

I completed my first 24 hour fast today. I won't be a fatty for much longer.

Alphabet will crush BSD and Linux like bugs.

b-b-b-but muh git uses GPL Q_Q

Daniel Johnson
Daniel Johnson

i think it's not just that

it's just that the idea of moving the entirety of the tree to git while preserving history is a pain in the fucking ass

Asher Rivera
Asher Rivera

hehehehe starving won't rid you of the pile of fat you grew in your body friendless kissless virgin lmfao.

Luis Thomas
Luis Thomas

I have friends and I'm not a virgin.

fasting > dieting

Fuchsia > BSD

Ryder Cook
Ryder Cook

friends
I know, 2 friends. You happen to call them "parents"

not a virgin
Hands wont count

lmao no wonder you are friendless virgin, considering how fat and smelly you are kek

BSD> pile of shit > fucksya
BTFO manchild hehehe

Adam Ross
Adam Ross

I have gained more friends actually, because I have been friendzoned by so many women. I have a normal number of friends now. Something like 5.

How exactly do you plan on competing with Alphabet?

Angel Hughes
Angel Hughes

When did Solaris become obscure?

am I getting old?

Evan Nguyen
Evan Nguyen

Doesn't being friendzoned mean you at least had a shit beforehand? Because you sure as hell didn't.

Nolan Bell
Nolan Bell

competing with Alphabet?
competing
It has to step inside the game, dumbshit manbaby

Samuel Ortiz

i think as weird as it sounds, there's probably more people who know about SPARC hardware than Solaris these days
