If you want to use OpenBSD anyways, why not give it a shot and see how
it goes? Best case, everything works great. Worst case, nothing works
(highly unlikely), and you try something else... FreeBSD, Linux, or
worst case, you reinstall Windows.
Why *do* folks ask if their hardware is supported, rather than simply
trying (multi-boot installations being a valid exception)?
