This is the case with just about any Linux distro.

I like computer programming because it's like Legos for the mind.

    This, however, is not Linux. This is OpenBSD, a BSD4.4ish implementation (look up information on Unix history if this does not mean anything to you). Each distro (various Linux distros, OpenBSD, FreeBSD, NetBSD, and other "free" operating systems) has it's own benefits, but all the world is definitely not Linux.

      Ach, beg your pardon. I suppose I should have said any "free *nix distro." Would that be correct? (I hate that abbreviation since Linux does not contain the string "nix" but it generally applies to Linux as well)
