Since Dragonfly does not currently have a live image (I checked) it would probably get a lot downloads from people who are curious about Dragonfly but don't want to install it to try it out.


The big highlights of DFBSD is in the filesystems (HAMMER and now HAMMER2) and kernel internals, so a live image "user experience" would not be very different from a FreeBSD live image. DFBSD is not really aimed at desktop users, though the developer team pride themselves with using it on their desktops and laptops too. Joe "regular" Amiga users would be better off trying GhostBSD or TrueOS, but I am quite sure they would not be very impressed, having seen what Linux distros offer.

You don't really need us to explain that one do you?


I really want you to explain what the point of forking would be, yes, please, as I see exactly zero good reasons to do so.

It's OK, nothing special, it works well. I have from time to time attempted to get AROS hosted working, but DFBSD is lacking functionality that AROS hosted relies on. The biggest hurdle has been in getting wifi working, I have been through I don't know how many different wifi adapters, but still not found anything that works reliably. So for now I have a raspberry pi zero W plugged into its ethernet port, acting as wifi/ether bridge.

I think the same, but @StarF is keen on DragonFly, which is why I suggested a live image.

DragonFly would not be my first choice. If I were to pursue such a project (and I'm not planning to) I would start with Linux, since it has better software support, using OpenRC instead of systemd, glibc for dynamic linking, musl for static linking, busybox for userspace, and my own window manager.

I'm getting a strong sense of deja vu -- have we discussed this before?

"Forking" in English is a sexual euphemism.

Perhaps saying it 'has sexual connotations' is more correct - but this is English ... now you have to be careful with the word "partner" for cryin' out loud.
