    Because I'm an optimist.  It's definitely more of a gut feeling then
    anything specific, from having used and worked on FreeBSD almost
    exclusively until I started the DragonFly project.

    In anycase, I really do think that DragonFly is now more stable then
    FreeBSD-4 ever was.  And, yes, a good chunk of the bugs that have been
    fixed, in particular to the buffer cache and softupdates, but also 
    issues with IPSEC, the tcp stack, and a few others, were all present
    in FreeBSD-4.
