FreeBSD vs OpenBSD On The ThinkPad X1 Carbon 6th

Tested out the X1 Carbon 6th gen Thinkpad with OpenBSD 6.3 after running FreeBSD 11.2 on it.

Here are my thoughts after comparing the two.

Just a rant.

No benchmarks or anything - just purely based off using it for a few days.

Overall, OpenBSD is way better in terms of out-of-the-box compatibility but FreeBSD performs way better on this laptop in my opinion.

UPDATE: OpenBSD now runs amazingly well on this laptop and is my daily driver.
