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?

You really have no clue what you're talking about do you. Please tell me the technical differences between Suse and RedHat? Other than a few configuration apps they might as well be the same, Linux is Linux. DragonFly is actually making technical innovations here. I'm not even a DFly user but at least I have some respect for what they're doing. As for GNOME being written largely by RedHat devs, you sir are an idiot.

How about the fact that everything from package managers to init scripts vary in Linux distributions. Sure Suse, RedHat and Mandrake are pretty similar, but saying that something like Gentoo is the same thing as RedHat is pretty uninformed. To be honest even RedHat has a lot of differences as compared to Suse. Look at SELinux.

The Linux Kernel is the Linux Kernel across the majority of distros.

I am afraid you are the one who needs to brush up your knowledge. Linux as the BSD people are very fond of pointing out is only the kernel. Starting with everything from SELinux support to cluster filesystems like GFS and Red Hat directory server, Fedora or RHEL is entirely different from the SUSE products.
