BSD and Darwin derivatives The DragonFly 2.4 release was released just today. One can choose from a bare-bones CD ISO, a DVD ISO that includes an X environment, and a bare-bones bootable USB drive image. In addition, this is the first time DragonFlyBSD has had a 64-bit ISO. 64-bit support is stable, but there will only be limited pkgsrc support in the current release. All versions of the release can all be downloaded from one of the many mirrors.

Great! Recently I loved the way DFBSD works. It's not as bloated as FBSD, it doesn't incorporate half-baked stuff [except of hammerfs, but it's understandble] and I had fewer problems with DFBSD, than with FBSD. I had to admit the failure of FBSD - IMO it went a wrong way. Most of the things in FBSD are overcomplicated to me at some point. DFBSD doesn't lack simplicity, so I find it perfect alternative for FBSD. IT actually reminds me of my everyday-use OS of choice, which is OpenBSD.
