I noticed on the DFly site that Dfly was switching from NetBSD pkgsrc to dports, which is a port of FreeBSD ports.
I guess they like FreeBSD ports better than NetBSD pkgsrc.
NetBSD pkgsrc has been ported to many other OSes including some non-Unixoid,
but I don't really want to use pkgsrc for Linux.
DFly is rather incompatible with my system; I tried their live USB including the latest release 3.6.0 amd64 and i386.
So is OpenBSD.
