A security-focused, free and open source version of the Unix operating system based on the old BSD branch. Created by Theo de Raadt in 1995, and widely considered one of the most (if not the most) secure operating system available. Although I was always intrigued by it, I didn't truly use it until the beginning of 2022, when I decided to start using it both on a server and an old Thinkpad laptop. I figured that using an OS based on the concepts of simplicity and security made sense, especially since my other commitments don't allow me so much time to take care of the system administration side of things.
