"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
"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."
