MirBSD -> MirOS

From Wikipedia:

One of the projects goals is to port the MirOS to run on the Linux kernel, hence the deprecation of MirBSD in favor of MirOS.

Interesting. And a rather heretic sounding idea in the BSD world... I wonder what is the motivation? Better drivers and support for some advanced features available only in Linux?

A Linux based OS with many MirOS/OpenBSD features would sound quite nice to me.

I think you'll find this is out of context and should be taken in the vein the name has move to MirOS from MirBSD as default due to MirOS ports etc running on a variety of platforms, not that MirBSD is going to be dropped in favour of a linux kernel'd implementation.

Yep, and that is not even suggested. But they seem to play with the idea of using their tools and ideas both on Linux and BSD kernels.
