    I'm very happy, but I have any questions :

    1- What's The New DesktopBSD's DE? the same KDE? or a new one? (I suggest Razor-qt)
    2- What's Development method? (fork or only a re-spin?)
    3- Free or non-Free? (FreeBSD Lisence lets you to publish a non-Free binary)

    1 On Freebsd
    2 On DragonFlyBSD

    FreeBSD has monolithic kernel like Windows, Linux and other operating systems and is good for old computers . But now there are multicore processors and supercomputers so its need multicore operating systems. DragonFlyBSD is multicore operating system it is fork of FreeBSD 4.x version.

    @stan-sib :
    You're wrong, FreeBSD is monolithic like linux , but windows is not monolithic. windows has a hybrid kernel.

    and other parts of your post :

    I know about DFlyBSD , but I asked those questions about "DesktopBSD" .

    Oh yes the old versions of Windows 9x series was monolithic, only new version of Windows NT series are hybrid kernel.

    If I right anderstanding hybrid operating system mean 8-bit/16-bit/32-bit/64-bit operating systems, but not multikernel operating system.
