Lazy Reading

I’m going to just title these “Lazy Reading” – I end up with too much diverse information/links to fit within the title.

    Minor nit on your Debian reference. It’s a FreeBSD kernel with a Debian userland.

    The only connection to Linux is that all of the *other* Debian ports include a Linux kernel.

    It’s kind of a ‘dancing bear’ of operating systems, in my opinion. It’s not that it dances particularly well, it’s that it dances at all.

  2. That’s an excellent analogy.

    Picking a nit on my own nit: I forgot about Debian/Hurd, which is even more of a dancing bear. Or a Potemkin Village, perhaps. So there are *two* Debian ports with non-Linux kernels.
