OpenBSD founder makes funding plea
Senior sources at OpenBSD are calling on commercial users for financial help as the firm claims that a 'culture of entitlement is starting to damage the open source community'
Senior managers at OpenBSD have admitted that the organisation is running at a loss and want to increase annual income to continue funding the development of the project's open source operating system.
"OpenBSD for the past two years has turned a loss of approximately $20,000 [£12,000]," Marco Peereboom, an OpenBSD developer wrote in the OpenBSD Journal on Tuesday. "This is starting to seriously impede the development of OpenBSD and OpenSSH."
OpenBSD is a secure Unix-like operating system that is popular among system administrators running firewalls.
