The comment about absence of politics is also inaccurate. OpenBSD has a specially designed political system that works very well for the project, just not one that anyone cares to explain in standard political language. What's more, claiming to be free of politics is sure to elicit complaints about how everything is political. Sometimes I shut down conversations about governance by sharing my opinion that benevolent dictatorship is the best form of government and and that I prefer software that is governed this way. But people who like to talk about government and democracy seem to get angry when I do this, so I don't do it very often.
