No. It is for helping people value the project and thus consider freedom
more valueable than any other feature.

Switching from a GPL'ed to a *less* free (BSD-licenced) kernel would be a huge step backwards for such people (of which I am one).

It is not a joke. But wouldn't it be a good one for April 1st?

Only if you provide a working patch porting Guix to FreeBSD, in the spirit of Marius's systemd effort ;-)

Kind regards,
