Default OpenBSD 5.7 officially released

Stefan Sperling gets the honor of announcing the official release of OpenBSD 5.7:

http://marc.info/?l=openbsd-misc&m=143043178115828&w=2

Remember, the OpenBSD project does not receive corporate support. Ordering the official CD sets & other items from the OpenBSD store helps ensure that further development continues in the future.

Enjoy!

Just finished installing and patching OpenBSD 5.7, running XFCE. This is another stellar release. I'm going to buy some swag at the OpenBSD store tomorrow.

Made a donation this AM via paypal to the OpenBSD project. Very convenient.

Reading the release notes I love the number of things that have been removed, e.g. support for extra ciphers for passwd and the somewhat large complicated web and mail servers I will never use as a mere hobbyist. In my fantasies I see myself using a much simpler or understandable system, having heard or read allusions to modern computing being bloated and full of needless complexity from the likes of Kay, Wirth, Pike, etc. Or else I imagine myself using something built on a higher level language and with an ideological bent to the architecture that directs the user to the source code live while the program is in use, in sort of the way emacs seems to be designed, and as certain GNU, particularly Guile, developers seem interested in. Realistically, however, my fantasy simple (but not a hairshirt) system seems likely to continue to be OpenBSD.

Does any other major free software project have this concept of "teduing", as they say, or at least to this degree? I know where I work we want to remove things but we seldom succeed in doing so.

Looking good. Basic install (less comp/game)(plus athn/urtwn/mpg123/dillo) => 551mb
Plus firefox => 900mb. Most Linux distros, even the lean ones, are over 1.5gb.
My thanks to everyone in the team.
