I've been following DragonFly because it represented an opportunity to
work on the community portion of a BSD system.  The DragonFly Digest lets
me read and document what's going on; I'm surprised that nobody has done
the same with any of the other BSDs, really, in the past... 7 years? 

There's so much BSD-oriented material happening and it gets drowned out by
the Windows and Linux chatter - not because it's necessarily better, but
just because there's so much of it.

Oh, and the DragonFly community is made of wonderful people, too.  I'm
confident I could take a stumbling tour through Europe and at least a few
people I've never met face to face would buy me a beer.  Or vice versa.
