RE: Coming along.
Hard to "sell the dream" when the system does not yet implement its ultimate goals.
Yes, that's why I called it a dream. I'm not sure what world you live in, but my dreams aren't necessarily of things that already exist in reality. But if you do live in that world, please tell me where it is, so I might never ever accidentally go there.
There is something wrong with that? The important thing is that the ideas get tested, and the best of them will likely end up being incorporated in more mainstream systems at some future point in time.
I always thought of dragon fly as more of a real operating system, rather than being pure OS research. I just don't want them to sell themselves short. I am likewise impressed with the progress of the small team, but more that that, I wish the team were bigger. I think it could be, if they did a better job of explaining the use cases.
