Re: FreeBSD4 compatibility
:Matt, do you see problem maintaining FreeBSD4 compatibility in the future? How hard would be to have FreeBSD 5+
We have never been binary compatible with FreeBSD 5+ and we never
It's not really a project goal to maintain binary compatibility with
FreeBSD. We've maintained binary compatibility with FreeBSD4 primarily
to leverage programs and to leverage the BSD ports tree that we inherited
from FreeBSD4. Now that we are moving to pkgsrc, that is becoming
far less of an issue. Linux compatibility is probably more important,
but even linux compatibility is not a project goal.
DragonFly's ultimate project goal is transparent clustering. I want to
be able to type in a few commands to create a computing service, allocate
some resources to it, attach it to a 'cluster' over a LAN and over
the internet, and have it 'just work'.
