    Who here uses dragonfly BSD and what do you do with it? I keep reading about it, but never read any articles from regular users

    1. 8

      So happy to see progress on HAMMER2. Eventually, when it’s ready, I hope it gets ported to OpenBSD and becomes the defacto BSD file system.

      1. 8

        I love how every discussion about DragonflyBSD is about how it’d be so great if HAMMER2 was in OpenBSD, and never about Dragonfly.

        edit: correct typo

        1. 3

          I was talking about Open. Free isn’t interesting to me.

          1. 1

            I meant OpenBSD, sorry.

        2. 1

          If the OpenBSD developers would be open to modern, reliable storage they would have some other options as well (eg. zfs).

          Storage is simply not a focus for OpenBSD. Is even TRIM support implemented yet?

          1. 3

            Hence why it’s more likely to be lifted wholesale than imported.

            ZFS is a non starter because OBSD is rather careful and risk-avoidant with licenses.

        3. 2

          Having only regularly used OpenBSD out of all the BSDs, Dragonfly seems like my next best choice for tinkering. I have to install it one of these days and give it a go.
