It's ok to not know what you are talking about; it is not ok to make blanket statements based on hearsay. OpenBSD is by far the most free OS in the landscape. Everything that ships with it is free or else it won't be distributed with it. There is not a single open source OS out there that is more careful than OpenBSD on licensing, copyrights and frivolous patents. We actually have standards. Unlinke linux OpenBSD does not contain proprietary firmware blobs in the distribution. Unlike linux OpenBSD does not have a HAL. I can go on for a while. Here is one, the code isn't bloated and doesn't mostly suck. I find it unethical to recommend a steaming pile of crap to someone. Speaking of strawman arguments; this is such an insult to ones intelligence. You are basically saying: "you are retarded if you don't let me tell you what you want".
