"The Reform Party has chosen to to use a real operating system to serve up it's online content - OpenBSD. To a tech-savvy computer user or a system administrator, this could only been seen as a logical choice."

"The Libertarian Party also employs BSD - FreeBSD to be precise. Why not? They use it for the same reason a lot of the rest of us do - it's free, it's powerful, and it's stable. If you find yourself in charge of the web site of a political party without the enormous backing that some others may have, a free operating system only makes sense. If, on the other hand, your running an established, rich and powerful political web site - it should still make sense."
