I haven't been following this issue other than keeping in the back of my mind that it *is* an issue. But it sure seems these guys are taking an aggressive stance in pushing fixes well in advance of their need, so there's sufficient time (no joke intended) to test, patch, and ensure. That's responsible engineering and I'm pretty impressed by it.

I'm also impressed this article didn't immediately become a bitchfest about Theo, the way most openBSD posts on Slashdot used to. Focus on the technology, not the personalities. OpenBSD is damned impressive, even if it doesn't like my hardware :( And to all you guys using it as a desktop out there: you have my respect.

The guys behind OpenBSD certainly deserve a lot of credit and if someone doesn't like their OS, they'll still use OpenSSH for sure. In the future we may even use LibreSSL as well ;) On the desktop it has become a nice alternative to Archlinux since they completely abandoned their BSD userland and where you have the systemd mess attached to everything now.

May I ask what your unsupported hardware is?
