  • Why computers suck and how learning from OpenBSD can make them marginally less horrible

    Next I will compare this enterprise development model approach with non-enterprise development - projects such as OpenBSD, which do not hesitate to introduce binary interface and API breaking changes to improve the code.

    One of the most commonly referred to pillars of the project's philosophy has long been it's emphasis on clean functional code. Any code which makes it into OpenBSD is subject to ongoing aggressive audits for deprecated, or otherwise unmaintained code in order to reduce cruft and attack surface. Additionally the project creator, Theo de Raadt, and his team of core developers engage in ongoing development for proactive mitigations for various attack classes many of which are directly adopted by various multi-platform userland applications as well as the operating systems themselves (Windows, Linux, and the other BSDs). Frequently it is the case that introducing new features (not just deprecating old ones) introduces new incompatibilities against previously functional binaries compiled for OpenBSD.
