Table Notes and Explanations

(Please refer to the table below.)
  • Select view:
  • To compare the software in this project to the software available in other distributions, please see our Compare Packages page.
  • Notes: In case where multiple versions of a package are shipped with a distribution, only the default version appears in the table. For indication about the GNOME version, please check the "nautilus" and "gnome-shell" packages. The Apache web server is listed as "httpd" and the Linux kernel is listed as "linux". The KDE desktop is represented by the "kdelibs" and "plasma-desktop" packages and the Xfce desktop by the "xfdesktop" package.
  • Colour scheme: green text = latest stable version, red text = development or beta version. The function determining beta versions is not 100% reliable due to a wide variety of versioning schemes.

REAL UNIX inside!! It is very minimal base system with clean code feels real unix intended since back. Very simple and ultra secure OS you will not find elsewhere. I am using it for years and have ot tried any other OS since then as OpenBSD is best suited.,

OpenBSD lives up to the moto
"Free, Functional & Secure"

The Functional is very important, meaning everything works.
No "hacks" needed (or encouraged) to get things working.
A professional grade OS

The FAQ is keep updated, simple and to the point.

To get the system installed, and up and running is quick with binary packages.

"default X environment is fully functional"
Fvwm which is part of the base system is more than adequate, there is a workspace switcher in the bottom right to switch between 9 different workspaces, so you can have a terminal open in one, another root terminal open in another, maybe Firefox open in another and maybe vlc open in another (you get the point)

xdm can be configured for startup during install.

all this and a free and secure system
what more can you ask for (that you really need)
