Good to see some developers willing to throw convention out the window, and willing to adopt new ideas. Nothing worse than developers saying, "yeah, lets create a better operating system - but stick to the same convetions!".

Yeah, I hope it pays off for the DragonflyBSD guys.

It certianly paid off for Linux when they refused to follow the Solaris style locking model that FreeBSD is (more or less) following.

Dragonfly is taking a different direction again. Interesting times.
