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.

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.

Maybe, but we will never know until we see it, and we havent had a decent Java story in a while. As people don t get good at something unless they practice it, it might do you some good to finnish it and post it anyway, regardless of whether or not you think you will do a terrible job.

Live and learn, right?
