Submission + - Arch Linux Ported To Run On The FreeBSD Kernel (

An anonymous reader writes: The Arch Linux distribution has been modified to run off the FreeBSD 9.0 kernel as an alternative to using Linux. The developer of Arch BSD explained his reasoning is enjoying FreeBSD while also liking the Arch Linux philosophy of a "fast, lightweight, optimized distro", so he sought to combine the two operating systems to have FreeBSD at its core while being encircled by Arch. The Arch BSD initiative is similar to Debian GNU/kFreeBSD.
