BSD and Darwin derivatives DragonFly 1.8.0 has been released. The biggest kernel change in this release is the addition of virtual kernel support and a virtual kernel build target. The biggest user-visible changes include updates to third party applications included in the base system, a major rewrite of NULLFS which removes all directory recursion restrictions from mount_null and removes nearly all the kernel resource overhead when using such mounts, and a multi-ip feature for jails.

"The FOSS BSDs have a great heritage and history, but its getting a little long in the tooth. It would be great if these very talented developers could learn to set aside their egos and work on a more viable project (i.e. Linux), but I understand that they have great pride in their work and great faith in their ideas. As long as some people find it useful, I support their efforts 100%. But they're not taking commercial marketshare, and they probably never will."

When people bring commercual marketshare up in a linux thread they are told that it doesnt matter... Why does it matter in a bsd thread then?

Personnally i don't see linux as a more viable project... only more hyped.
