You have a good point. I dont actually use it for a desktop mostly
because my primary interest
in usage is for network functionality, ipf/ipnat/vpn's etc.
Though to be honest, I have not gone through the exercise of checking
off all of my commonly used windoze apps and trying to setup OpenBSD as
If I were voting for a default window manager, I would choose the
smallest memory use and code size that could be security reviewed
(rewritten perhaps) easily, and that would be as easy to configure as
any of the others that used a nice single .rc style of file.
Keep it so that users have to know what they are getting into and keep
the bloat out of it.
