Debian and its clones It's hard to turn a news item like this into a front page item, but I'm going to try anyway, because I think it's pretty cool news. As we all know, Debian supports a number of architectures as 'release architectures', but what some of you may not be aware of is that Debian also supports a number of kernels other than Linux. One of those, the FreeBSD kernel, has been promoted to release status, putting it on equal footing with the Linux variant.

No, you have to have the whole userland compiled specifically for Debian GNU/kFreeBSD. (Not counting the Linux compatibility/emulation layer you can use to run some closed source apps)

aptitude install freebsd-stack then?

Technically it shouldn't be a problem I think.
