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?

Incorrect. Linux ext3 filesystems mount it the same as freebsd mount by default

Anyway a Linux filesystem is still currupted after power failure, I am talking about Fedora now. I've never seen FreeBSD crashing on that.

They both are the first mainstream operating systems in the world to come with MAC based security by default using SELinux and hence are much more secure than any version of BSD

Yeah right. Never heard of TrustedBSD i guess.

I think the key thing you're missing here is the "by default".

Actually, the progress made by the TrustedBSD project seems to have largely been merged back into the mainline FreeBSD system starting with 5.0, possibly earlier.

Since 5.3 was considered production quality, when was it shipped? November 2004. When was RHEL4 shipped? February 2005.

From that data it seems like FreeBSD was the first mainstream system with MAC-based security.
