An anonymous reader writes: OpenBSD is considered by many to be the most secure operating system — bar none. The linked article provides an argument to dispell this myth, arguing that Linux and FreeBSD are intrinsically more secure because of their implementations of MAC technology. Furthermore the article is critical of the OpenBSD's team understanding of security concepts and examines the use of strlcpy, their choice to make sendmail the default MTA, and even points out that current versions of Windows are more secure in some instances. If nothing else, an interesting read, and hopefully good conversation fodder.
