BSD and Darwin derivatives Fans of DragonFly BSD will be getting their Christmas present late this year, and plans for 1.5 have been announced. MP safe networking code, the long awaited cache coherency management system, and a port of Sun's ZFS. Read here for more. Update: Refresh, empty cache, whatever, and check the shiny new beastie icon! And there was much rejoicing. Can we now please discuss DragonFly BSD?

But you can have a dozen sections for different linux distributions. Ridiculous.

As if DragonflyBSD, in all its coolness, has as many users and developers as ANY one of those distributions.

But undoubtedly, it's a lot more important than any of those Linux distributions from an OS-technical point of view. DFBSD innovates OS instead of repackaging software.

The most sensical/logical view if you don't want seperate categories would be to rename the FreeBSD section the BSD section, and use Beastie as icon.

Heh. I'm a big fan of DF, but I'd be suprised if there is even one thousand people using it. Too young, too small. For the time being, I think it fits quite happilly where it is, in the "FreeBSD and other BSDs" section.
