You know, one of the reasons for kFreeBSD is that some people consider
Linux as a toy OS. You’re always someone else’s fool, after all.

kFreeBSD has more than 95% of the Debian archive ported, with only a
very small part of it non-functional. This is more software than any
other Linux distribution. There is a more active and numerous community
than e.g. for the PowerPC port. Its features make it more
server-oriented, for sure, but RHEL too is server-oriented and I haven’t
read about GNOME making it harder to support RPM.

So far we managed to disable only minor functionality on kFreeBSD
(unlike Hurd, which barely works at all). Making such a move towards
being Linux-only would be a radical change in the GNOME community, which
has been so far very supportive of any kind of porting efforts
