Dragonfly BSD

Dragonfly BSD is a fork of FreeBSD from the 4.x branch. It was created by Matt Dillon in June 2003 because he believed the path FreeBSD 5.x was taking would lead to performance and maintainability issues. Others in the FreeBSD project did not agree with his concerns and Dragonfly BSD was born. Please note that Dragonfly BSD is not a variant of Linux but is a UNIX operating system.

Order Dragonfly BSD

Dragonfly BSD 1.12 was released on February 26th 2008. The release information is available here on the DragonFly BSD website. The 1.12.2 release was made available on April 20th 2008 containing bugfixes etc.

The Dragonfly BSD CD is a "live cd", meaning that it will boot directly off the CD into a desktop environment which you can then use to play around with Dragonfly BSD and test out your hardware. You can then install it to your computer if you so choose.
