I'm not that insane jumping on everything in front of me.How many of you will be deleting FreeBSD and installing this?

There are eccentric users from the GNU or Linux community who do act like that, and there are many in the forums recently, who behave like that. No serious FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD, DragonFlyBSD, Minix user would do that, and of course I know this. Your tone is condescending and an insult that doesn't have relevance. Furthermore, you've already admitted you're unsure of the person's reason for posting it, possibly unless you search their user history, which I look at the posts' content. So if that's the case, it's still a troll or a flamewar.Do you honestly think the OP really thought that was a serious option--that someone will see this, say woo-hoo in a Homer Simpson tone, then delete their current BSD installs to install this?

That was my thought too - early April Fools prank. We'll just have to wait and see.I'll wait a bit and see if this is some serious project. Or maybe it's an Aprils Fools Prank, launched a bit early? Time will tell. And if it is an earnest project, it may well absorb the Linux-systemd-expats. Who knows?
Blasphemy... Pure blasphemy.What you've all been waiting for: UbuntuBSD
Indeed. It's plausible.I'll wait a bit and see if this is some serious project. Or maybe it's an Aprils Fools Prank, launched a bit early? Time will tell.
I would have some reserves about this. Usually people that cares about the Init system used are experts that prefer more "advanced" OSes.And if it is an earnest project, it may well absorb the Linux-systemd-expats. Who knows?
So, Unity should not be included at the moment. Seems just a porting of Ubuntu userland on FreeBSD kernel, just like Debian/kFreeBSD. Notihing more, nothing less.Features
- Versatile text based installer
- Xfce desktop included
- Ubuntu based
- Debian based
- FreeBSD based
- Suitable for desktops and server alike
- ZFS support completely integrated

IMHO it's because, instead of being the usual Linux-based fork, it is based on a BSD kernel. A lot of people seem to consider BSDs as strange exotic stuff. And, being Ubuntu involved, this attracts even the attention of a lot of Linux newbies/zealots (always IMHO).I suppose that question could be asked of a bunch of open source projects. They're describing it as escape from systemd, so perhaps that's their motive.
It's just interesting that this one is getting a lot of press for some reason, I've seen mention on Distrowatch, Slashdot, and I think the OP linked to Phoronix. I don't recollect any of the other ones generating a lot of attention.
