About one year ago, I wrote about how we used OpenBSD at the point of sale at the Basel Zoo. Well, the good news first: We replaced OpenBSD by NetBSD for our POS applications, both in development, but also for deployment. That might sound like a radical step, but in fact it is not. It is just the consequence from OpenBSD not being ready for prime-time in an enterprise world. The lack of proper SMP support, for one, is a major problem with todays computers being mostly multi-core.
