BSD and Darwin derivatives DragonFly BSD 1.4 is the third major release of Matthew Dillon's fork of the FreeBSD operating system, and significant progress has been made towards reaching many of the project's numerous goals. New in this release include a more up to date version of the GNU Compiler Collection (required due to the incread use of thread local storage in DragonFly), an import of NetBSD's Citrus code (Comprehensive I18N Framework Towards Respectable Unix Systems), major reworking of all core subsystems in preparation for removing the MP lock, rewrites of various VFS related code and many updated drivers, frameworks and contributed programs.

It was written from the POV of someone who simply wants to use DF as a day-to-day desktop system, and noting some of the more irritating aspects of the system in regards to that.

"It is not supposed to be your grandmother's desktop."

I never claimed nor imagined it to be, and of course by "desktop" I mean a typical UNIX fan's desktop machine.


so wait, its a desktop review, but its not a desktop review? your lead in was good but the rest was garbage.
DFly isny ready for day-to-day desktop system.

Yep. I think I made that clear.
