isn't the only Debian GNU/Linux alternative receiving lots of love these days, but Debian GNU/kFreeBSD is being improved as well. Following the Debian GNU/kFreeBSD spin reaching a release status with 6.0
, a number of enhancements have been made recently to this operating system that combines the Debian GNU user-land with the FreeBSD kernel.
Among the recent improvements to Debian GNU/kFreeBSD is a graphical installer support, user-land support for FreeBSD jails, user-land support for encrypting disk partitions, FUSE support, the compiler has been upgraded against GCC 4.6, the kernel has been upgraded against FreeBSD 8.2, there's better wireless/WiFi support, and much more.
Two bonuses are regular snapshots of the FreeBSD 9-CURRENT kernel and restored ABI compatibility with FreeBSD.
