PC-BSD "With all of the BSD variants available for download, it's easy to incorrectly assume all of them are pure, incompatible forks from each other. Actually, there are more shades of BSD out in the world than just separate forks. One in particular made the news a couple of weeks ago when it was commercially acquired. The BSD in question is PC-BSD. The company that bought it is iXsystems, a systems deployment and integrator firm out of San Jose that has pretty strong experience implementing *BSD, Unix and Linux systems for its customer base. So, why did the company up and buy PC-BSD?"

FreeBSD is currently the most popular *BSD OS, but DragonFlyBSD (a fork of FreeBSD) is going to be the most "modern" and "efficient" BSD, so, having a "desktop layer" on top of DragonFlyBSD (like PCBSD on top of FreeBSD) would be great!!!

Why is DragonFlyBSD better than FreeBSD? Backing your statement would help us understand.

He does not need to do so. He said so, so it must be true. No need to back it up with any facts of any sorts.

"Is going to be" rather sums up the merits of the statement. Lots of things are going to be, or would have been only if...
