Please explain. (What is HawkinsOS?)

You are breaking licensing terms with "your" HawkinsOS.

I'd probably like to point out the fact that this is more then starting a 
"war" with the FreeBSD developers, but going much farther then that.

Be advised that significant portions of FreeBSD were released under licenses 
that include terms other then the BSD License, and that you must follow if 
you want to advertise your OS.
