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 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. "

Indeed. I'm not a DragonFly BSD user, but I find it far more interesting from a technical point of view than Yet Another Linux distro. Perhaps it's time to revamp the categories of OSNews and clean out a few the least used and instead add more relevant ones?

We do that continiously. Not too long ago we created RISC OS and Zeta categories. DragonFly simply doesn't get enough news and attention to get it's own databse category, I'm sorry. Next thing you'll know we need to create seperate categories for AmigaOS 1, AmigaOS 2, AmigaOS 3 and AmigaOS 4.

Thom, now you're just being plain silly. Yuo can't possbily compare 3 dead and 1 zombie version of an OS to 4+ BSDs that are all alvie and kicking. But, as you say, there's not enough news for DragonFly BSD for the time being.
