I disagree.  I'd say that OpenBSD and FreeBSD put security in exactly
the same place -- at the top of the list.

Sorry but I have to disagree here.
FreeBSD ships with closed source software including following drivers:
ath, nve, oltr, rr232x, hptmv.
Closed source software implies potential insecurity. If security is at
the top of the list then I see a clear contradiction here.

Sorry, but that's an incredibly naive statement. *All* software implies potential insecurity. It's the nature of software.

If it were untrue, there would be no security patches for open source software.
