These are all free, open source operating system. You may sell both OpenBSD and any installations and consulting. That could improve your income for your budget.

Open source means that most developers work for free and fun or to obtain something they in particular want.

OpenBSD is thrilled to actively work on security. A major compenent that brings security benefits is simple auditing of code, not for security but for correctness. If you are seeking perfect security, YOU CAN'T HAVE IT! It is impossible. Not even agencies such as the NSA, etc have it. Remember Edward Snowden? All systems can be breached. Period. My suggestion is to stop taking a confrontational attitude ( you may not even realize you are doing it) and try to take a congenial attitude. It will always produce more good results than confrontation. Chris Bennett PS. Please format your emails to 80 or 72 character width.
