@jason123santa @ecliptik RPI2 (armv7) Not really sure exactly what this means:"There are still a fair number of things to do on each of these boards, however OpenBSD is generally considered to be usable on them. The platform is now self hosting, however there is no SMP support."!
No SMP support (specially when the RPI2 has 4× Cortex-A7 900 MHz)!
I challenge myself when working on OpenBSD (as a hobby, not professionally) to only use the official sources and on-system documentation first before hitting up duckduckgo and the results are good.
I used to run it in the early aughts in combination with FreeBSD to support a Counter-Strike server (back when it could do Linux emulation) https://web.archive.org/web/20020610071911/http://www.ecliptik.com/about.php
Also run OpenBSD on my work laptop (x61s Thinkpad) for a couple of years and it worked great. This was for a Fortune 500 too with all the compliance and restrictions that came with it.

I should try out some BSD on my pi and see how it is. Still use windows for some games and things but am trying to switch more to linux but I should just go straight to trying BSD.
The video is great and he definitely did not talk like he was always correct and knew everything. He also knew that other people have different requirements when it comes to an OS and only explaining why BSD works for him.
sshd will run by default, but you'll need to setup a secondary user other than root.
This guide gives a good overview of how to install it on a RPI3,
"The Raspberry Pi 4 is only supported when using EDK2-based UEFI firmware. By default the boot ROM will only try to load the firmware off an SD card. No manual steps needed to boot from a USB disk drive as the UEFI prefers booting from USB over booting from SD card"
