After FreeWRT, MidnightBSD, a FreeBSD-based operating system, has adopted mksh as its default Korn shell, that is, /bin/mksh and /bin/ksh (but not as /bin/sh). While the current state of integration uses mksh R30, the upcoming R31 release with features requested by MidnightBSD developers will be integrated soon.

We would like to thank the developers of MidnightBSD for considering this and congratulate their users to gain a usable-by-default shell. We would also like to encourage other operating system developers to follow this example and integrate mksh (or, like OpenSolaris, AT&T ksh93).
