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.

I live in Colombia (U know...South America) and it has become illegal to unlock cellphones since a lot of people were being killed just to steal a FreaKIN' cellphone (just in case they are brought illegally from other countries) but to balance things up the government forced carriers to sell unlocked cellphones, smooth move I have to say.
