Good things come to those who wait. IMO the best thing about DragonFly
is what and how you can build on top of it. Compared to other BSDs it
has a rewritten kernel, and this work continues. It will be much easier
to build clustering on top of this kernel. HAMMER already supports
replication, and from following this list I know some people want this
feature like yesterday.
