Upgrading to OpenBSD 6.7: that was easy!

This morning I saw the new OpenBSD artwork and t-shirts that I liked instantly. But before ordering shirts, I wanted to do an upgrade. It could not have been easier. I must say that I always really liked the inplace upgrade option that Debian has been delivering for 20+ years now. But OpenBSD sysupgrade is so quick and easy, you can just perform it without actually having finished your first coffee:
