what about "bringing BSD base to debian folks"  point of view ? well BSD
folks don't like debian but i am one of debian folks that don't like linux
/well like BSD much more / so i think that it must go on / well crowl on is
the right :>>/

heh what HURD is offering to us ? a different base :> i think BSD is a
better base to use for the Debian OS /yes as it is written on the debian.org
site it is not just another linux distro it is an OS and i am agree/

as i read above /it is a letter that received later than this from
Mr.Eichin/ at first time it will be nice to have at least a server OS / i
mean a OS without X and user applications :> well a epic may be or scrollz
