Having screwed up your kernel config is a bad reason not to like gentoo though. That's a linux thing rather than what makes gentoo shit.
> Is it true that OpenBSD has problems with drivers
With openbsd (or freebsd) you might have to make some goofy choices to get wifi running on your laptop.
I can't remember where CPU threading is at, or what is happening with graphics cards. I would make sure that your needs are met with the current state of things, because just waiting is going to be a less reliable strategy for ever getting drivers. OpenCL is never going to happen (the trick is, not wanting it to.).
> systemd, like I do not prefer it, but I am ok with it * existing * in my machine
You don't want systemd existing in your machine. Or pulseaudio or anything like that. It's not that it's uncool to use, it's that the windows model of operating systems, including stuff like privilege escalation, and everything else, is not good. Not good meaning very bad. Extremely aggressive promotion of something like systemd should strike you as powerfully glowy.
> 3. Some important things I should know ( I will run it with dwm and st probably?
Not having decadent package management does suck.
I like fvwm rather than dwm. OpenBSD's stock fvwm needs your own customisation to be better though. I'm not really big on suckless. Change my mind.
4. Can I operate it basically like some Linux system?
No, it's not linux. It's probably slower, it doesn't get vendor support for drivers and for example you don't have linux containers.
There is a BSD libc. Things are a bit different.
You are less likely to be being hacked.
I didn't check but I don't think OpenBSD signed a blood covenant with transvestites, so that's kind of an up.
