    Phoronix: FreeBSD Kernel May Come As Option In Fedora 19

    Hours ago I wrote about the proposal to use Cinnamon as the default desktop in Fedora 19 rather than the GNOME Shell. While that proposal may seem a bit outlandish for the Red Hat sponsored Linux distribution, here's another interesting proposal that may be a bit of a pipe-dream: a FreeBSD kernel option for Fedora 19 rather than the Linux kernel...

    ArchBSD actually uses both the FreeBSD kernel and FreeBSD userland with the pacman package manager and gentoo init system

        A joke

        This is just a (bad?) joke of one Fedora developer, please, do not take it seriously - I've immediately moved it to a different category (a joke one).

        One tip for Phoronix - wait at least for the announcement on devel-announce list - Features in category ReadyForWrangler are still not a final proposals!

            It's impossible as systemd cannot work without the Linux kernel.

            Forget about this proposal, Fedora will not go back to SysVinit.

            Michael, think before posting.

              And now it's a joke officially ;-)

              /me is usually not so serious but once medias picked up the story so seriously...

                Michael is the biggest troll ever.

                  Since Red Hat sponsors Fedora and Red Hat is loyal to linux, this proposal won't go ahead

                  Those who propose this at Fedora should be kicked out and their copyrights removed from anything they wrote for fedora

                    Michael didn't wait for a mailing list announcement with eudev. Why would he wait for this?

                      Gotta get the scoop! (It would work a lot better if the internet wasn't full of trolls.)

                        Oh, how is this Fedora's fault exactly? Larabel not knowing how a public Wiki works?

                          Who's lack of responsibility, the guy who posted it? Yeah, making joke feature suggestions is pretty irresponsible. The way Fedora handled it isn't. Please, tell me how this reflect badly on them? Trolls are trolls.

                            Microsoft's dev lists are open to the public?

                              Exactly, it is comparing apples and oranges. This is a community distro running a community Wiki. It is not the same thing as something like Microsoft. Once again, you were just operating under the misconception that it was.
