"Here's some good news for all you Debian fans: Debian 6.0 (Squeeze) has now been released.

"And it's not just Linux users who should take note. For the first time, alongside Debian GNU/Linux (that's right, that's Debian's official name, and they get the "GNU"), Debian GNU/kFreeBSD is introduced as a "technology preview."

"Debian GNU/kFreeBSD will port both a 32- and 64-bit PC version of the FreeBSD kernel into the Debian userspace, making them the first Debian release without a Linux kernel. The Debian Project is serious about the technology preview label, though: these FreeBSD-based versions will have limited advanced desktop features.

"Whether it's Linux or FreeBSD inside, Debian 6.0 will include the usual range of desktop environments: KDE Plasma, GNOME, Xfce, and LXDE desktop environments will all be on board."
