I think both have good points.
Definition of "Debian GNU/kFreeBSD" does not need to be destructed by
excuse of not-being-Linux. But the waring for non-Linux should remain.
What about text along:
| Debian GNU/&arch-kernel; is a Debian GNU system with the &arch-kernel; kernel.
| This port of Debian is currently only being developed for the i386 and
| amd64 architectures, although ports to other architectures is possible.
| Please note that Debian GNU/&arch-kernel; is not a Linux system thus some
| information on Linux system may not apply to it.
Of course the second and last should be arch specific.
HURD may be able to share some text, too :-)
