Debian GNU/kFreeBSD

apt-get install freebsd?

This talk will show you what Debian GNU/kFreeBSD exactly is, what the differences between Debian GNU/kFreeBSD and the well known Debian GNU/Linux are, what difficulties the developers had, especially with regards to packaging and infrastructure, and what design decisions where made to get so far that Debian GNU/kFreeBSD finally has been accepted as Debian release architecture and what you can do with it but not with Debian GNU/Linux or with plain FreeBSD.

It's also gives a little overview over similar projects. (There are more than you may expect. :-)
