This is awesome!!!

I wonder what the dev's will use the money for?  OpenBSD hackathons?  New
hardware?  Bandwidth costs?

More companies need to do this.  It's great to see a well known provider help
out like this.

Yeah, it's cool. I've actually spoken to a company with many hundreds of
systems that I was migrating off of the software to OpenSSH, and
tried to get them to contribute some fraction of the licensing costs they
were saving to the OpenSSH team. They ignored me, and in fact preferred to
keep pushing back the actual switchover, even as they exceeded the number of
licenses of software, on the pretext that they were *planning to*
switch away and would get around to it some day.

Then the layoffs hit.

If it weren't for the trashy low budget superbowl ads, I might consider
using their services. They did nothing for their corporate image.

And after that wardrobe malfunction I'm not buying anything else
from Spear & Jackson.

Or maybe adverts aren't really much of a basis for deciding anything.
