I wonder if there was be room for a linux distribution that used the
FreeBSD ports system to manage packages...

Anyway, FreeBSD isn't on the list of things I plan to try soon.  It is to
Intel only, and I don't really need another Intel OS, especially not one
that is going to have worse hardware support than linux.
