Debian and its clones Two new architectures based on the FreeBSD-kernel have been added to the Debian Archive. This makes Debian the first distribution, and probably the first large OS, to support two completely different kernels at the same time. "The two new architectures (well, better named OS i think, as they use a different kernel) are available in unstable and experimental. We do start out empty, importing only what is needed to get a build running. For this reason you will not be able to directly use it immediately. Please wait until they catched up, which I expect to happen soon."

1. If FreeBSD supports DTRACE then will GNU/kfreebsd support DTRACE?

2. Can someone summarise why the Hurd has not yet taken off? Where are they at? What is stopping them progressing?

@1: DTrace and ZFS should be possible.
@2: Nobody works on Hurd.
