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.

I'm not scared of breaking it. I just wouldn't want to scratch anything that cost a substantial amount.

Think of it like clothes, I wouldn't wear a smart suit to do the gardening. But equally I wouldn't wear a cheap pair of jeans to a wedding.

So what I'm after is a watch that I'm not going to be too precious about rather than something more ornamental to wear for special occasions. I'm just yet to find a watch that's cheap, yet relatively sturdy and which reflects a little of my personality.
