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.

Matt was really into clustering when he started the project and tends to focus on items with that goal. While many people do use dragonfly as a desktop os, that's not the original intent of it. In fact, they only mention server and workstation loads on their homepage.

If you want a BSD focused on desktop use, you need to look at MidnightBSD (my project), or one of the various freebsd distros like TrueOS (PC-BSD), Desktop BSD or GhostBSD.
