Not sure why they announced it today. I read about it earlier this year, for
example back in April
http://linux.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=09/04/05/222239. Unless they are
announcing it is now part of the standard Debian releases.

This is not the only such remix in town:

= Gentoo did it some time ago too
http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/gentoo-freebsd.xml
= There is also GNU/Hurd (DukeNukem Forever and ever?)
http://www.debian.org/ports/hurd/
= Here is one that has OpenSolaris as a kernel too http://www.nexenta.org/os

All this remixing is because of the freedom to do whatever you want with the
software. Good things come out of these mashups.
