As of July 12, 2004, the 1.0 milestone has been reached by the DragonFly Team. DragonFly BSD is a derivative of the FreeBSD 4.x tree, and represents a different idea about the logical extension of FreeBSD. I haven’t got a spare machine to try it out at the moment, but I think I’ll be able to clear one in the near future and give it a whirl.
I am reminded that I vowed once never to use version 1.0 software again. I must be crazy.
