BSD and Darwin derivatives The DragonFly 2.4 release was released just today. One can choose from a bare-bones CD ISO, a DVD ISO that includes an X environment, and a bare-bones bootable USB drive image. In addition, this is the first time DragonFlyBSD has had a 64-bit ISO. 64-bit support is stable, but there will only be limited pkgsrc support in the current release. All versions of the release can all be downloaded from one of the many mirrors.

It's a BSD-based operating system with some unique functions from Amiga. Plus the team leader is an ex-Amiga programmer. Interesting.

Well, actually it IS BSD system, not just a BSD-based OS ;) it's a fork of FreeBSD.

I said "BSD-based" because I don't want to make DFB sound like another similar fork from FreeBSD.

Anyway, you do have a point.

I like BSD and I like Amiga, it's all good.
