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?

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.

May I suggest a compromise? Add a topic specifically for Other BSDs (DragonFly, DesktopBSD; PcBSD etc etc)? That way the FreeBSD topic would be pure FreeBSD which makes sense given the fact that FreeBSD is the dominant BSD. If anything, the "Other BSDs" should end up with the smallest of the traditional BSDs (either NetBSD or OpenBSD).

By the way, you still call the original BeOS category "Zeta, BeOS & Derivatives" and since you've created a specific Zeta topic you may wish to change that.
