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.

But it's totally you! Cheap, plastic.

There are a lot of watches that show their inner working, but the "real" ones are quite pricey. Of course you can also find a cheap one, but the quality/reliability may range from poor to excellent.

If you value a watch a lot, go for one with gorilla glass and that's water proof. Spend some money, but you know it will last.

There are a number of "computer" watches about and if the Pebble becomes a hit we might see more of them. It may be worth the wait if you'd fancy such a watch.
