BSD and Darwin derivatives There are a lot of options in the Free UNIX market at the moment. Everyone's favorite buzzword is Linux, and Sun is in the process of releasing Solaris under a Free Software license. One family, however, receives less attention than it is due. Berkley Software Distribution (BSD) has grown into almost a complete replacement for UNIX, with numerous enhancements. David Chisnall explains why the BSD family has found its way into a large number of systems and what these systems can do for you.

BSD rocks (as my subject says ;) )


My favorite distro is OpenBSD. It's the way ALL OSs should be written, with security in mind. PLUS, it doesn't loose ease of use or potential eye candy as a trade off. You can still install and window/desktop manager and is no easier/difficult to operate than any other BSD (as far as I know).

Over all, BSD is awesome ;)

(note: I only read parts of the article ATM, more in a couple mins)
