    iirc, the first time they did this was because OpenBSD was “randomly” chosen. I am surprised they’ve done it again. you’d think Google would donate something seeing how a not trivial part of the Android code base uses OpenBSD code.

    and, of course, OpenSSH.

      Is that company using OpenBSD for any of their products? They seem to be working on some innovative phone features, but it’s not clear (to me) what the underlying OS is.

      Would be pretty amazing though, if it was based on OpenBSD.

      1. 5

        No idea. But note that Android borrows big chunks of OpenBSD libc for bionic, for instance; it’s entirely possible to be grateful to OpenBSD without using full OpenBSD.

          They might also rely on it internally.
