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.

Actually if I remember correctly in many European countries that is the same.

I can't find any hard information supporting this claim.
All I can find are vague claims like "some countries in Europe" so I'll call not true on that until someone actually provides hard evidence.
There's plenty of examples where carriers are required to provide an unlock service, free or at a charge, by law.
