Thanks to all. I've got the PDF, will print and start reading.
So far I have heard that BSD is the more robust *nix OS out there. I
run a bunch of server in Linux (Whitebox, Redhat enterprise, Suse)
running sendmail, squid, sshd, ClamAV, apache, imap and the most
recent, an iPBX called Asterisk, a few linux based routers and some
other stuff.
I need performance and i heard i cant go wrong with bsd.
I was reading the design goals of dragonfly and i agree with that, so
i'll give it a try.

Since all my Linux installations are production servers.....can I
switch or 1.0a release is not ready for prime time? (i got the march
27 build)
