Ordering OpenBSD products

OpenBSD 4.8
Nov 1, 2010
Every six months (around May 1 and Nov 1) OpenBSD makes an official software release. To accompany this free software release on the FTP servers, we make artwork and a song which are distributed along with the software on a set of CDs. The proceeds from sale of these products is the primary funding of the OpenBSD project.

We have a close relationship with our primary distributor the Computer Shop of Calgary who also sells our product worldwide direct to customers via post or courier.

Worldwide orders for the new (and older) products can be made from the Computer Shop of Calgary order site.

Our products are also available at many stores around the world. Typically, these stores will have the current release and accept pre-orders for the next release, but their stock of older releases will vary greatly. The OpenBSD project does not keep track of which store has which releases or items in stock. If you see a store on this list which is not stocking either the current or next release, or has other problems, please inform deraadt@openbsd.org so that other customers won't run into the same difficulties.

Ordering older products

The Computer Shop of Calgary
distributes for the project and
therefore has many of the older
CDs and T-shirts, such as these
and many more...
 ... etc.

You can also contact your favorite book seller and give them the current ISBN number, and ask them to special order for you. In fact this is a good way to help increase channels of distribution for OpenBSD, since if they get a number of orders, it may encourage them to stock it regularly in the future.
