Nice going...

I just re-installed DragonFly on my machine (I'd done it earlier, then 
switched back to FreeBSD 5, but mainly used linux).  I think I'll stay now.  

The variant symlinks and what you've done with gcc2/gcc3 are just so cool.
I'm now wondering why nobody else in the free unix world has done this 
before :)  I'm running a kernel with the recent lwkt-token stuff in it and 
notice no problems at all.

The main annoyances are lack of ACPI support (there were problems even 
with FreeBSD 5, and I got a couple of mails from Nate Lawson telling me 
what it was; when Matt finishes the FreeBSD-5 ACPI import I'll look 
into it further); and XFree86 works only with the vesa/fbdev drivers, 
not the radeon driver (it works with the latter under linux).  Primarily
that affects video playing (no xv extension), which I can live without, or 
use linux for.
