AFAIK, The DragonFly BSD developers are primarily reworking the foundation of the OS at this time. That's what the focus is. It's not (yet) about making it a killer Desktop, even though theoretically it could be considered on par with Linux. The biggest problem for end-users is that the FreeBSD ports tree, which dfly are piggybacking on for now, needs overrides for a lot of ports to build on DragonFly, and sometimes they break. A native solution is on the horizon, but it's waiting for the new VFS feature set.
