> Are you sure that OpenBSD has a better record?


I found this for loose reference.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OpenBSD#Security_and_code_auditing

I will say that even though on the surface OpenBSD appears to have a
better track record security wise
I tend to use FreeBSD for my desktop needs because of things like
Nvidia Graphics (esp now that there is amd64 support)
also wine works in FreeBSD and some of my clinets still run windows apps.

I find FreeBSD is the middle ground the world needs between Linix and OpenBSD
