Justified

Posted at — Apr 24, 2021

“Justified” was a great Texas Ranger TV series. Justified is also how I’m feeling now about my decisoin to abandon Linux for OpenBSD. While OpenBSD does not solve all the problems I have more trust that it’s size or everything means this is less likely.

Modern day system engineering is more a business than it is “get sh*t done”.

I have a certain amount of experience in the OS internals but nothing that would get me to actually implement my own, however, my experience does hint that we could do more with less; and that’s why OpenBSD is my tool of choice for the time being. But when I’m forced to use Linux I will try to layer OpenBSD and FreeBSD just to increase the complexity for an attacker.
