#OpenBSD is great for web development. It's fast, consistent, reliable, well documented. Works great on hardware with limited resources.

disk usage:
- server (base, no packages installed) 1GB
- desktop (200 packages) 5GB

memory usage:
- server 200-400MB
- desktop 2-4GB
Memory: 75M/533M
xenodm + cwm + xterm + httpd

Right after reboot.
With all my web dev environment running:

... + firefox + tmux + vi

Memory: 634M/1306M
This setup has 16G of RAM and that's four times more than I ever needed on #OpenBSD.
5GB on disk
31 packages installed
(182 packages total with dependences)

4GB on disk
30 packages (153 total)
without libreoffice
On #OpenBSD I install those 153 packages with a single command in 70 seconds!

# pkg_add -l pkgs

Yes, I uninstalled all packages first:

# pkg_delete -X
# time pkg_add -xl pkgs

# du -hs /usr
3.9GB /usr

# time pkg_delete -xX

# du -hs /usr
2.3GB /usr
Tried that few times.
Persistent results (plus minus 2 seconds).

I wish I could send my tutorials and my tweets to my past self :)
At least one or two years back.
First, learn English. Read more books.
Second, learn touch typing. Pick your keyboard.
Learn all of ed/nvi, before learning Vim.
ed/nvi have a really small footprint. Grok it.
