So we don’t need m:tier anymore? Nice!
OpenBSD has changed a lot recently, with the recent additions of virtualization, removal of old architectures, and now, the official binary patches.
No kidding. It seems like OpenBSD has made lots of great improvements (especially in terms of usability, and ripping out cruft) lately – pledge, doas, network perf improvements, vmm, and now binary patching. I even recall hearing a while back that smp locks have been pushed further down, and better multicore performance is on the horizon somewhere.
Super excited to see where OpenBSD goes next.
I realise OpenBSD is by developers for developers, but I consider this a fairly important step that might enable users who are not experienced sysadmins or developers.
