Default Hello everyone.

Just a quick note to introduce myself to the forum. I've been running Linux systems for the past twenty-odd years, but for the past few years I've become increasingly dissatisfied with the direction Linux has taken, and some of the choices the OS has made (systemd), at least with the distros I've used (Debian mostly).

So a couple of months ago I decided to install OpenBSD on an old Thinkpad T400. The installation was a charm: I had a basic but fully functional system up and running within the hour. OpenBSD is such an elegant operating system. I am now going to replace my other Linux machines, and convert to BSD.

Now I ask myself why I didn't adopt BSD earlier. I suspect it's the fact that Linux worked well enough for most things, together with the misguided belief that OpenBSD would be difficult to install and use. In fact, the opposite is proving itself to be true, due in no small part to the excellent documentation.
