Default My OpenBSD......

Just for light relief.

How have you set up your system?

Myself, with 6.4, I have determined to get to know cwm, so that's my WM.

I always use firefox for the web, so that's installed, have mc for files, & mpg123 for my music, using mpv for videos - & for distraction, xpat2 & PySolFC.

Normally, I just keep myself up to date by putting OBSD on a spare machine, & mainly use Linux, but this time around, I have it on three.
Linux since 1999, & also a BSD user.

6.3 is installed on my ThinkPad, 6.4 on the ThinkStation, but I mostly use the ThinkPad.

I use Xfce or fvwm as WM, Firefox and Chromium for the net, LibreOffice for office work, VLC for videos and music, Gimp and Blender for graphic and video edition, and also Qt and PostgreSQL...
