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.

Please by all means, feel free to submit something yourself if you don´t like the things that get posted here. I am looking forward to seeing what you´re capable of ;^)

No, you've got that backwards. If people don't like what you write, it doesn't mean that they should write something better. It means that you should write better.

Interesting idea. Pass.

The review was useful for me. I was wondering about most things that the article informed me about. I even liked the style of writing. I agree I would also like a more indepth technical comparission... but that shouldn't mean you should stop writing. Please keep doing it and I think you're dealing exceptionally well with those sometimes pretty harsh comments.

Best regards,
-Stephan

Some OSs core assets are desktop and others are server. A good review should discuss the core asset of the system. The article would have been better if it had focused on the main goals of DF. Though, I appreciate comments on the Unix nerds user experience of DF too. Also he has every right to write about this. However, the goal of the article should have been stated from the start, even in the title. In a way the title is fooling the reader when it does not state that it is a review of the user experience since the reader does not immidiately associate DF with user experience, whereas "review of Ubuntu" would.
