Slashdot article, again

Hi all,

Looks like Matt did it again. Another Slashdot article http://bsd.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=05/02/02/1858251!
"There is an interesting interview with Matt Dillon regarding the current status and future of DragonFlyBSD. In it he compares the difference between serializing tokens and the mutex model (a nice contrast to the previously posted Scott Long SMPng interview). He also describes the work being done in the VFS, along with his plans for Journaling, SSI Clustering, packaging, and more."

The interview it links to is on bsdnexus (Jan 31st) http://forums.bsdnexus.com/viewtopic.php?p=3232 and provides some more explanation on tokens vs. mutexes, VFS and Journaling.
(The Scott Long interview for references: http://www.onlamp.com/pub/a/bsd/2005/01/20/smpng.html)
