I think at one point they did a LOT more about security than we did, but I
hope things have changed since then. I think right when OpenBSD formed,
they went in w/ a whole slew of security fixes which we hadn't done for
some reason.

But that was a while ago, so I'm not sure how things are now. I believe
we've done better since then.

Take care,
