"OpenBSD was right" is code for Theo was right.
"for the wrong reasons." is code for not covering for Intel was wrong.

I moved to OpenBSD over the SystemD drama, and from what
I have seen so far, Theo has principles and sticks to them.

I see argument in the comments over which license is best.
They say making people contribute back is best, but the
result is corporations have taken over Linux.

"In the latest "Linux Kernel Development" report produced by the Linux foundation, the vast majority of the contributions to kernel development -- more than 80 percent -- are "demonstrably done by developers who are being paid for their work." Translation: The work is being done by programmers contributing to Linux in the service of some corporate paymaster, be it Red Hat, Intel, Suse, Samsung, or Oracle."

The OpenBSD way where they write the code for themselves,
and say use if you like, or don't use it, we don't mind,
has kept them independent, and the quality is better than Linux.
I still use Linux, so I can see the quality difference.
The license hasn't made them wealthy. I don't know what can be done about that.

Before my time, OpenBSD broke all packages in ports once, because they found a vulnerability. No for profit would ever do that. That's heckin crazy!

Okay, thats my rant for the day.

I hope everyone understood the spirit that comment was made. It was admiration. OpenBSD are willing to go through pain to fix a critical bug, while others would cover it up and hope no one notices.
