I assume from that tirade, that the dragonflybsd web site, and, what
is written about dragonflybsd, is all wrong, and, consequently, that
dragonflybsd has never had anything to do with freeBSD, and that
nothing that works with freeBSD, works with dragonflyBSD, or has ever
worked with dragonflyBSD..
