BSD and Darwin derivatives Fans of DragonFly BSD will be getting their Christmas present late this year, and plans for 1.5 have been announced. MP safe networking code, the long awaited cache coherency management system, and a port of Sun's ZFS. Read here for more. Update: Refresh, empty cache, whatever, and check the shiny new beastie icon! And there was much rejoicing. Can we now please discuss DragonFly BSD?

"Yuo can't possbily compare 3 dead and 1 zombie version of an OS to 4+ BSDs that are all alvie and kicking"

"Dead? Zeta has sold more copies of its OS than Be Inc has done. There are more regular Zeta users in the EU alone than DragonFlyBSD has over the world. For RISC OS, there are more users of that in the UK alone than DragonFlyBSD has over the world. As for Amiga-- the Amiga is something with such an heritage, I wouldn't be too dismissive of it if I were you."

I was referring to AmigaOS of which I have over 10 years of experience of. AmigaOS has indeed quite some heritage, but I failed to see how you could compare giving DragonFly BSD its own topic to giving AmigaOS 1.x its own topic. That is ALL. There is no need fo you to be so defensive especially since you've misinterpreted me. Perhaps I was not clear enough.
