About FreeBSD


FreeBSD is an operating system that traces it’s heritage back to the original unix development at AT&T starting in 1970.

The BSD part of the name refers to 'Berkeley Software Distribution' which is also part of it's origin, being mostly a variant of the AT&T unix developed by staff and students at Berkeley University. From there the first 'public' project was called 386BSD reflecting the aim of getting it to run on Intel hardware. While NetBSD forked from 386BSD early on with the aim of supporting as many different hardware architectures as possible, the name FreeBSD was in use later the same year.

While FreeBSD has kept it's focus on a text based system to form a solid base for reliable servers, PC-BSD has focused on a gui desktop version of FreeBSD for the average user.

Don't let the text based focus scare you away, Xorg, gnome, KDE and just about any other open source project will also run happily on a FreeBSD machine. If getting into the technical side of things scares you then PC-BSD can still keep you happy.

I comment whenever I like a post on a site or I have something to add to the
discussion. Usually it is a result of the passion displayed in the article
I looked at. And after this article Add new comment | Shaneware.biz.

I was moved enough to post a comment :-) I actually do have a couple of questions for you if it's okay.
Is it just me or does it look like some of the remarks look like left
by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are writing on other online social sites, I'd like
to follow everything new you have to post. Could you make a list every one of your community pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and
gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her
ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off
topic but I had to tell someone!
