Debian and its clones Ging, the only live distribution based on Debian GNU/kFreeBSD, has made its way to the 0.1.0 release. Ging is now using KDE 3.4 as its desktop, and includes a mixture of KDE and GNOME applications: Konqueror, Gimp, Koffice, Gaim, and more. And for those who have tried previous versions of Ging, you'll be greatly pleased to see the boot time has decreased by a factor of ~15 times.

What would be the point in having a Debian distribution with FreeBSD userland and FreeBSD kernel? At that point, it seems that you might as well just grab FreeBSD. Otherwise, I think you'd just end up with FreeBSD that used deb instead of packages/ports, and I don't see any advantage in that.
