Installed OpenBSD on my favourite laptop to give it a real chance (earlier, I’ve used an old, bulky laptop which is not the same on so many levels).

The experience is a lot like using Linux 20 years ago, except that X just works, wifi just works (once you’ve side loaded the firmware) and you don’t need to spend a week compiling the kernel.

But it’s real old school. Very Unixy: Read the man pages, edit conf files with vi and last, but not least: no systemd!

There are binary packages and ports (much like AUR) that give me most things I know and love from Linux (Emacs, Firefox, Chromium, mpv, ffmpeg, zsh)

So much to explore. I’m a total n00b and I love it!
