Anyone heard about ArchBSD?
« on: January 29, 2013, 11:42:13 am »
Hi everyone,

I was just casually browsing slashdot when I stumbled upon an article about ARCH-BSD a variant of Arch linux that uses the BSD kernel.

http://archbsd.net/

What is everyone's opinion of this and what do you think the draw backs or advantages will be?

Nope, never heard of it .. but why would you want the BSD kernel ?

This was my thought. I have never had a great experience with BSD and I cant really see any advantage of using the BSD Kernel.

Maybe we are missing something.....but I doubt it.
