"Already well-regarded as a security-focused network operating system, OpenBSD stands to further upgrade its reputation with Version 3.6, which combines enhanced services with wider hardware support.

OpenBSD 3.6, which was released last month, will be a good fit for companies that wish to put services at the network edge, such as firewalls or VPNs, with more flexibility than appliance-based options could provide.

OpenBSD 3.6 runs on 14 hardware platforms, including Intel Corp.'s x86 and Advanced Micro Devices Inc.'s AMD64, and is freely available in a 4.6MB boot-disk image from one of the FTP sites at In eWEEK Labs' tests, we used this image to begin our OpenBSD install and pulled down the additional OpenBSD software packages we required from an FTP mirror site during installation."
