I don't write often on the mailing list, but this time I wanted to share 
with you my feelings about Dragonfly BSD. I've been following the 
project since a few years, trying regularly every new release.

I've seen the 3.6 version will be released soon, so I used a daily build 
to try it out, and WOW ! One sentence could resume it all: I can use 
KDE4 on my intel laptop, and even restart X.

The switch to "pkgng" is very nice, I could had installed everything 
easily, no need to find a repository or configure the tool. No need to 
install the ports.
The desktop performance is amazing, it's very smooth, even when 
installing packages or copying data from the network. I just tried 
OpenBSD 5.4 before, and the system just hangs when you access the disk 
too much.

I just want to thanks everyone who worked hard on this version !  Keep 
up the good work !
