BSD and Darwin derivatives BSD (Berkely System Distribution) was a research operating system based on the original AT&T Unix, developed by the University of Berkeley, California. It has been Open Source right from the beginning, and after the university lost interest in developing it further, several community projects started up (the very first ones were NetBSD and FreeBSD in the early nineties) to continue developing BSD. Anyway, Linux was born roughly at the same time, but a pending lawsuit about copyright infringements prevented the BSD projects to become as successful as Linux (though you could argue about the exact reasons).

Eventually, the security team announced they didn't find anything security-relevant, but still recommend not to trust binary package installations made in that time frame. In December, everything was completely back online.


The package build system isn't yet up. Certain FreeBSD 9.0 binary packages are older than what's available in ports, and 9.1 doesn't have any binary packages available yet.
