The diversity of operating systems is a good thing. Helps keep the NSA on their toes and it's fun to explore different computing paradigms.


And Dragonfly was created by one of the smartest guy of the Amiga community (Dillon)... it has pretty interesting ideas, different than the rest at least.

IMHO it's super cool to have small creative OSes because innovation happens there... big names like Linux or FreeBSD are pretty conservative I don't see them innovating or doing things differently.
