Interestingly they've adopted Debian's dpkg tool for package management - certainly a much better option than FreeBSD's package tool from my experiences with both of them.

Hmmm . . Funny, i was just at the linux conference the other day and Bruce Perens the creator of the the Debian package system was telling Jordan Hubbard the creator of the FreeBSD ports system that they should merge together the two. The linux gurus there all seemed to feel that the FreeBSD ports system was probably best FWIW.

Accepting donations of a machine doesn't mean that the platform will be supported first tier. It would still remain a port.
