Someone not like OpenBSD ????
Other than lack of SMP support, I've had good luck with OpenBSD
(and FreeBSD too). I primarily use Solaris, but I also will begin
my Irix learning experience soon (restoring an Indy, and on a

Hope somebody does though, as I'm all for OpenBSD supporting more
platforms (which they'd revive PMAX, but I gather there is not enough
interest in keeping the port alive).
