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.

"as in: reviewing DragonBSD as if it were something else which it isn't intended to be in the first place"

Were it not intended to be used in anything but clustering situations, then Joerg and the others wouldn't be working to get things like KDE and GNOME working at all (they are, they're just not done yet).

Seriously, some people just don't think.
