Debian GNU/kFreeBSD && Debian GNU/NetBSD

I did not know exactly where to post that but I thought it will make more sense here...
Actually I am just wondering if anyone tried the netbsd and/or freebsd ports of debian... I would be quite interested in having some feedback on them concerning their state (usable or not), stability, available drivers and general feeling of these ports... There is not much info on these ports around from what i saw so if you have good links (besides the debian website) it would be very much appreciated.
Thanks in advance,

Haven't tried it, but BSD (rock solid stability) + Debian (Kick *ss system) has to be pretty cool. I might try it one of these days but I am pretty much sold on Linux as the base for my systems, except one webserver.

yup but from what i see on the repos.. they did not get updated since 2002-2003... but seems active cause people talk about it in the debian list... can be a really nice stuff but I actually never heard experience of people having tried it...
does not seem much people tried it here actually ... well and did anyone tried the debian hurd? (looks very nice too :-) )
Thanks for your replies guys
