I have no experience with Oracle, but if you are going to be running
insecure software, why not choose a better-performing platform? Oracle
will require extensive filtering anyway (see: full-disclosure postings
on Oracle, for instance), so you might as well choose the platform that
will give you the best performance, which is unlikely to be OpenBSD.
FreeBSD will be OpenBSD-ish enough not to kill you, and likely give you
better performance and better compatibility; and it's secure enough that
it will not add much to the hole that Oracle already is.
