BSD and Darwin derivatives

DragonFly version 4.8 brings EFI boot support in the installer, further speed improvements in the kernel, a new NVMe driver, a new eMMC driver, and Intel video driver updates.

A ton of changes in this release.

But it's not clear what the target use cases are dragonfly bsd. I'm assuming it's not just a hobby.

Arguably everyone could get by with a global monoculture and nobody needs alternatives. Projects like this however are for people who oppose group think and prefer taking the road less taken. It's not going to change the market any time soon, but they have their own vision and I say good on them for delivering on it!
