Announcing HyperbolaBSD Roadmap
Due to the Linux kernel rapidly proceeding down an unstable path, we are planning on implementing a completely new OS derived from several BSD implementations.
This was not an easy decision to make, but we wish to use our time and resources to create a viable alternative to the current operating system trends which are actively seeking to undermine
user choice and freedom

This will not be a "distro", but a
hard fork of the OpenBSD kernel and userspace

new code written under GPLv3 and LGPLv3

to replace GPL-incompatible parts and non-free ones.
Reasons for this include:

  • Linux kernel forcing adaption of DRM, including HDCP.
  • Linux kernel proposed usage of Rust (which contains freedom flaws and a centralized code repository that is more prone to cyber attack and generally requires internet access to use.)
  • Linux kernel being written without security and in mind. (KSPP is basically a dead project and Grsec is no longer free software)
  • Many GNU userspace and core utils are all forcing adaption of features without build time options to disable them. E.g. (PulseAudio / SystemD / Rust / Java as forced dependencies)
