I run OpenBSD on my firewall box, which is a single-core Intel-based box
with a QFE, running off a smallish CF card. It's fast on the old
hardware, has a tiny footprint, and is good at its job. It'd pretty
much suck as a user desktop ... but I'm not making any attempt to try to
use it as one, so that's fine.
