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).

How current is your project in relation to FreeBSD (using them as a touchstone)? I noticed you started the project from FreeBSD 6.x. Are your packages now current with FBSD 9.0, or what? The project looks interesting and I'd like to try it. Will it run in VBox? I've tried past versions of FBSD and I could not get them to boot in VBox...
