    I think it’s important to note this is the last version of OpenBSD that will be available on CD—so this is a very limited edition that will never come again.

    1. 1

      Wait. Can’t you just download the software then write it onto your own CD?

      1. 2

        Of course you can, but this will be the last official release that you can buy on CD from the site. Future releases will be download only.

        1. 1

          Of course, but you don’t get the art or developers' signatures.

          1. 4

            Don’t forget the stickers. Never forget the stickers…

      2. 8

        Don’t forget you can also send a few dollars to the OpenBSD foundation via their donation page.

          I wish they would become a registered charity so I could support them through amazon smile, right now I have the FreeBSD foundation set as my amazon smile charity.

          Hmm, perhaps i should have gotten my set signed in cambridge, too. At the time I was more interested in coding…

          I signed a few other peoples sets, though.

              I could bring mine to next year’s big hackathon and get it signed by everyone there.

              Would that make it a special special edition? :)

          2. 1

            Would be nice to have an edition digitally signed by 40 developers. Might make it a little easier to verify the releases than it is today :)

                Awesome. And if you don’t have the release before?
