  1. What problem is dragonfly trying to solve?

    I know this is an old question but

    FreeBSD is trying to solve the problem of making it the most versatile OS so that you can run it for any task. Be it for firewall services. Web services. Network storage. Etc.

    OpenBSD is trying to strive for correctness and security. That’s the problem statement they are solving.

    NetBSD is solving the problem of running it on any architecture.

    Dragonfly website just says the problem state is to “DragonFly provides an opportunity for the BSD base to grow in an entirely different direction from the one taken in the FreeBSD, NetBSD, and OpenBSD series.”

    What confuses me about that problem statement is that it doesn’t date what the problem is with this other BSD.

    And when it says “grow in a different direction … than FreeBSD, NetBSD and OpenBSD” do you mean grow in only supporting x64? Or grow in not being as versatile as FreeBSD?

    What is the “different direction” and why does a different direction need to be taken?
