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.

They got it right with the jailbreaking. However the librarian's exception, for ripping DVDs in the USA, only allows for educators and students not the general public.

Things are going to get weirder and weirder, as congress tries to regulate things they have the capacity to understand less and less.
