What's your frame of reference?
You have to adjust to the BSD-type init, and things generally may seem
to be in unfamiliar locations for a while. ps and a number of other
utilities will have different command switches. And software-delivery
is distinctly different.
OpenBSD has extremely locked down security by default, which is either
a constant background annoyance or reassuring, depending on your degree
of paranoia and tolerance for inconvenience. It does _not_ have
particularly good performance, especially relative to FreeBSD.
