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?

What people have been asking all along, and apparently you have missed, is that you don't use the FreeBSD logo for all BSD projects, but rather a BSD icon for all of them.

Apparantly you don't understand how it works in the world of OS communities. When we revert back to the old FreeBSD/beastie logo for the "FreeBSD and other BSDs" category, I will get emails from FreeBSD people who demand I put up the new logo-- exactly what happened not too long ago when the new logo was announced.

And I'm sorry, but FreeBSD items make up for 95% of the content in the "FreeBSD and other BSDs" category, so they get to "choose" the icon.

Now, I'll place any news related to DragonFly BSD in the general category-- which is much less appealing and defining, and it degrades DragonFly BSD to the hobby status, but I have little choice.

Now you're doing that just to spite us. This is the least sensical option.

No, as I explained, you guys leave me with no other option. You don't want it under the "FreeBSD and other BSDs", because for reasons I still do not understand, it doesn't fit that description. Fine, I'm okay with that.

However, then you only leave me with one other option, and that is the general category, because making a new category specifically for DragonFly BSD is out of the question, and changing the icon for the "FreeBSD and other BSDs" category to a general BSD icon is also out of the question, because 95% of the stories in that category ARE FreeBSD stories.
