One gentleman in FreeBSD-land has created a Sys-5//Linuxesque
system admin package. He gave up after digging several
flaming arrows from his chest. I was all for this take-the-
best-of-both FreeNixes admin approaches. But... .
When/If you ever create your hybrid I'd shore be interested in
putting it on my spare server. Currently I've got 3 boxes:
2 FBSD, 1 SuSE Linux. Also, I'd use your DebianBSD for when
I go native|naked--DSL.
(FWIW: DaemonNews.org is interested in this project. I've
been writing for the zine since it began and would like to
write articles on this New and Improved BSD.)
