A couple of weeks ago, we introduced you to the ubuntuBSD project, which aimed to bring an operating system powered by the FreeBSD kernel while offering the familiarity of the Ubuntu Linux OS to the users.
Currently, ubuntuBSD is under heavy development, with a fourth beta build release happening a day ago, precisely April 7, 2016. And now it seems that the developer is seeking official status and willing to contribute all of his work to the main Ubuntu channels.
“I would like to contribute all my work to Ubuntu Community and, if you think it is worthy, make ubuntuBSD an official Ubuntu project like Xubuntu or Edubuntu,” said Jon Boden. “If you’re interested, please let me know how would you like me to proceed.”
Marius Nestor of Softpedia said, we believe that ubuntuBSD is a very interesting project, that’s why we’re promoting it on our website, but for it to become an official Ubuntu flavor so soon, it might not be realistic, at least not at this moment and not without a final release of the OS.
As of now, there isn’t any response from Canonical employees regarding the ubuntuBSD project, but we will keep you updated once any official announcement is made.
