The next time you feel the need to complain about OpenBSD not having a port/package for something, don't. Instead, go read the Porter's Handbook and write up the port yourself. It's really not all that difficult and it's OK if your first couple of ports really aren't that good. You will get helpful comments back and you will get better at writing up ports. And then, magically, that thing you were gonna complain about will be supported by OpenBSD.

Anybody can write up a port. Yes, it's work. But anything worthwhile is work. And you just might find that you enjoy it. And at least then you can say you tried, even if it fails. That's a lot more useful than just complaining. And maybe, just maybe, you'll prevent someone else from complaining in the future.
