Wireless OpenBSD coverage

NetBSD has had such "out of the box" support for years. My home wireless AP was a netbsd box for a coupla years until the power supply blew and damaged the mother board. Since the netbsd box was a $10 computer show pickup I just tossed it and replaced it with a cheapo pre-packaged AP from the Microcenter bargain table.
Not sure if anyone else here knows the amusing history but OpenBSD started life when Theo de Raadt was "fired" from the netbsd project for being an insufferable jerk. Although I have never met him first person accounts related to me are universally unflattering.
Anyone here ever meet him? I suppose being "fired" from an opensource project is pretty telling but anyone have any other first person accounts of his.......idiosynchrocies?
