Stop! DragonFlyBSD HAMMER time

BSD

DragonFlyBSD has reached a major milestone with its HAMMER filesystem in the new 2.2.0 release. DragonFly was forked from FreeBSD in 2003 in order to "grow in an entirely different direction from the one taken in the FreeBSD, NetBSD, and OpenBSD series" - its ultimate goal being to provide native clustering support in the kernel. Besides supporting such clustering, HAMMER "has been designed to solve numerous issues and to add many new capabilities... such as fine-grained snapshots, instant crash recovery, and near real-time mirroring." Sounds lovely, but we're waiting for Netcraft to confirm that it's still alive...
