That blog is just a hog wash. To quote one of kind souls from misc AT openbsd in order to have secure operating system you have to design secure hardware. i386 hardware is crap by design.
Any further discussion is waist of time.

Security of OS and hardware is a very deep topic. Many very smart people were thinking about that. It is true that OpenBSD doesn't belong to the group of secure operating systems due to its Unix heritage. Unix was never meant to be truly secure operating system if for no other reasons then for its portability.

People who are interested in secure operating systems should try to find as many documents as possible written by the scientists of RAND corporation and NSA. Basically
we common humans know about security about as much as it leaked from NSA and RAND. That is the real truth.
