    OpenBSD is seldom used around, I suggest have a try with CentOS 5.4 as it’s much more widely used compared to OpenBSD!
    Vivek, long time no see any good articles, will you please keep going, we need your directions!

    Hey, thanks for the article. I like OpenBSD for some special cases.

    @edenlinux, Can’t afford big, over-priced Cisco gear and firewall? Try OpenBSD with with CARP (one special case).

    Yes, I’m working on few articles, just stay tuned 🙂

    When I post “long time no see any good articles” yesterday, I soon found that It’s a mistake — your technical articles are available at, that’s why I didnt see updates for weeks :-/

    “OpenBSD is seldom used around, I suggest have a try with CentOS 5.4 as it’s much more widely used compared to OpenBSD!”

    I suggest that you try that OS called windows. It’s way, way much more widely used compared to anything you linux fanboys use!!

    You don’t get the point of obsd. And it’s good. It helps to keep fanboys away.
