"Debian kFreeBSD is a toy OS, people really shouldn't misunderstand that.''
It is extremely important to have more than one free kernel. In other slashdot stories we all have seen the attack to Android, which is basically Linux. How long before MS Apple and other criminals (convicted monopolists) attack Linux to oblivion in USA. I just hope, that Europe might come to their senses, and continue to resist software patents.
I had hope about free Solaris, because I believed that Sun could protect the OS with their patent portfolio. But now Sun is Oracle.
So, Debian kFreeBSD and Debian kHurd, are invaluable projects. It must be made clear to those criminals that if they nuked Linux, everyone would switch to a replacement kernel (FreeBSD) without affecting the userland. And if they nuked FreeBSD too, then we could switch to Hurd, and the criminals would have to start all over again.
By the way, of course Debian kFreeBSD would be a toy OS. Didn't MS say so about Linux at the start? didn't old Unix vendors say exactly the same about Windows? And before that wasn't DOS only for playing around with toy computers?
