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?

Stop being a childish little prat Thom! The little shiny ball with two horns sticking out doesn't real mean "BSD" to a lot of people. Just because FreeBSD Released a new icon, and "95%" of the articles are FreeBSD related under the BSD category doesn't mean that this is appropriate. As mentioned earlier this isn't even the officeal FreeBSD Logo! Please just change it to an icon that reads "BSD" or the old "beastie". Please!! You are just alienating BSD users to further your own ego.

You guys got what you wanted-- we probably created a whole new set of enemies because we eliminated the Darwin category/logo.

Stop being a childish little prat Thom!

Excuse me? Childish? Who started this silly discussion over an *icon*?

and "95%" of the articles are FreeBSD related under the BSD category do

For what it's worth, and I've only mentioned it like, what, 12874239340438682356348583045 times, there was no such thing as a "BSD" category. We had a "FreeBSD and other BSDs" category. But now, you have your "Other BSDs" category.

And there was much rejoicing.

"Stop being a childish little prat Thom!...Please!! You are just alienating BSD users to further your own ego."

Too bad I've run out of mod points. I'll just have to shortlist this one so I can MOD IT DOWN!
