I can't answer your question, however I wanted to comment something
about one of the proposed texts:
| Debian is a free operating system (OS) for your computer. An operating
| system is the set of basic programs and utilities that make your
| computer run. Debian uses the Linux or FreeBSD kernel (the core of an
| operating system), but most of the basic OS tools come from the GNU
| project; hence the name Debian GNU/Linux or Debian GNU/kFreeBSD.
This is saying that FreeBSD is a kernel, and that Debian uses it. But
that's not true. Debian doesn't use FreeBSD, only a small part of it
(its kernel, plus some bits of kernel-related code). The phrase
"kernel of FreeBSD" (or its abbreviation, "kFreeBSD") is often used to
refer to the situation unambigously.
