Actually there are ongoing efforts to port HAL to FreeBSD and to
OpenSolaris (the latter being headed by the Nexenta people I believe).
It's unlikely to remain a Unix thing for very long. In the meantime, KDE 4
will feature the Solid library to handle hot-plugging: it'll use HAL where
available, and system specific code otherwise. I don't think Gnome has any
specific plans as yet.
