Linux After about a year of work, the ArchLinux distribution now offers a variant running on the FreeBSD kernel. Says the developer, "Why would I do this? If like me, you enjoy FreeBSD and love it, but also like the philosophy behind Arch Linux, which is a fast, lightweight, optimized distro, I figured why not combine the both. Even though you could just do it on FreeBSD using the ports, not everyone wants to compile." This now puts Arch in the same category as Debian with Debian GNU/KFreeBSD, which offers a Debian userland on top of a FreeBSD kernel.

As of Saturday, it will be illegal to unlock phones in the US.


....say what? I can't really comprehend what I just read. It doesn't compute.
Are you sure you're not talking about North Korea or Cold War-era Eastern bloc states?

In some ways I miss the cold war. Sure, we almost blew ourselves up but at least there was some checks and balances and a "lets not be as bad as those guys" attitude.

(Edit: A Google search later and my brain just stops working. "This comes into effect under concerns of national security". WTF?? Did I just step into Orwell's 1984?)
