    I love how clean and simple the whole upgrade process is for DragonflyBSD. You just checkout the new branch, build, and restart.

    As compared to OpenBSD, where there is a bit of accidental complexity in upgrades, it is amazing that this is possible.

      I really like DragonflyBSD upgrade process as well. But OpenBSD has sysupgrade, which has great ergonomics!


      I haven’t tried it yet but it looks awesome

        It just works. I was really impressed when I used it to upgrade from 6.5 to 6.6.

          Thanks! I was a bit scared to run “sysupgrade” due to the language on the upgrade page: https://www.openbsd.org/faq/upgrade66.html

          also, the fact that is not (yet?) listed as the first update procedure
