OpenBSD 6.2
« on: October 10, 2017, 04:19:45 AM »
>tfw Parsifal hasn't made an OpenBSD release thread since 5.8...

I just installed 6.2 on my X201. Following some fairly generic documentation on getting a basic desktop environment setup with pleb-tier apps. Even though the previous install processes have been the same, I am enjoying this time around a quite bit more than before. Must be from talking with Parsifal about it hours on end. Maybe I will make a thread and post weekly about the time I spend with the OS. Then, I can stop updating it shortly after.

That's because I don't run releases anymore. I run -current these days. Actually I'm already running newer code than what's in 6.2.

Also you didn't even link the page which lists all the new stuff: https://www.openbsd.org/62.html

Many consider these extraneous classes an important part of a well-rounded classical education.

I have installed OpenBSD 6.2 on a virtual machine and might even install it on my laptop if I discover a use-case for doing so. Right now, the Windows Linux subsystem meets any need I have.
