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.

I do love all BSDs, FreeBSd being my system of choice..

I always wondered what's the main reason why the BSDs don't have the same visibility as Linux.... You always see big companies supporting projects for Linux and not for FreeBSD or his BSDs brothers.

Anyway, I use FreeBSD for anything, it's really great.
