BSD and Darwin derivatives DragonFly 1.8.0 has been released. The biggest kernel change in this release is the addition of virtual kernel support and a virtual kernel build target. The biggest user-visible changes include updates to third party applications included in the base system, a major rewrite of NULLFS which removes all directory recursion restrictions from mount_null and removes nearly all the kernel resource overhead when using such mounts, and a multi-ip feature for jails.

But for now, Linux is a free kernel for over a dozen architectures that scales better than some proprietary UNIX kernels do on their target architecture.

Which Unix kernels ? this include the AIX kernel I suppose ?

If not, an IBM's employe is telling us that Linux and AIX rulez them all.

Funny, it doesn't feel marketing at all ...
