Default OpenBSD = Awesome Laptop OS

I've been using 4.3 as my OS for an old HP laptop and it has never let me down. I've been using it with FLuxbox with all the office and administration apps installed and it never crashes with so many apps running at the same time. I'm using an old P3 laptop with 640MB of RAM. I vnc, rdesktop, firefox, tons of aterms open, openoffice, all running on top of fluxbox at the same time and not one time did it crash with all these apps open in a 15 year old dinosaur laptop. I'm able to switch windows with no signs of slow down while doing mission critical work. I turn on xlock to take a break and when I log back in, it's a snap and I'm back to work in no time. I'm able to finish my work a day early and just want to say thanks to the Puffy crew. When I need a new app, Pkg_add -v and it's installed in no time and I'm back to work.
