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).

That's what we've been working on for some time in MidnightBSD. Our mport package management tools were covered in a BSD Magazine article if you're interested.

I'm planning on doing the 0.4 release with the package tools this year. You can actually use an early version in 0.3 as an option, but it doesn't have all the polish one would expect.
