OpenBSD is easier to manage than Linux, IME (and I've been using Linux since 1995 and OpenBSD a few years later). The system is tuned to be user-friendly, not idiot-friendly. Their documentation (website FAQ, man pages) are good and useful.
However, the driver support isn't as wide as Linux. On my 64-bit ARM SBC, I recently had to switch to Armbian because OpenBSD doesn't support the onboard graphics, and neither Firefox nor Chromium function properly now. I used to be able to at least run one of those over ssh -X, but starting with OpenBSD 6.7 that no longer worked, and I'm guessing it's because the newer version of those browsers bail out when they don't find a GPU (at least that's what the error messages seemed to indicate).
So anyway, try it and if your browser works, then you're good. The little stuff like dwm and st will work fine with just the sofware renderer (either wsfb or vesafb).
And if it doesn't work on your hardware, you can still try NetBSD. I haven't tried NetBSD on this board yet, but it's not clear that would help me because I've only got 2 GB RAM, and I'm pretty sure that's not enough to build Rust (dependency for Firefox). Well maybe they have packages anyway, since they cross-compile stuff (OpenBSD doesn't, they only compile directly on the target hardware). I guess I'll try it at some point.
