BSD and Darwin derivatives DragonFly BSD 1.4 is the third major release of Matthew Dillon's fork of the FreeBSD operating system, and significant progress has been made towards reaching many of the project's numerous goals. New in this release include a more up to date version of the GNU Compiler Collection (required due to the incread use of thread local storage in DragonFly), an import of NetBSD's Citrus code (Comprehensive I18N Framework Towards Respectable Unix Systems), major reworking of all core subsystems in preparation for removing the MP lock, rewrites of various VFS related code and many updated drivers, frameworks and contributed programs.

In my family we always said 'your best doesn't mean it's good enough' and I could write something but I don't want to put more tripe out on the internet. I've written a few rough drafts over the last two years as to why Java is the ideal programming language for beginners but I realised it wouldn't really fit here and it'd be too long for most people to read.

The only other thing I think I could write about is mode/context switches and why they screw over microkernels... but even then anyone who has a CompSci or SoftEng BSc or any technical college should already know that so it'd be like "bringing salt to the ocean."
