FreeBSD "How long have you been using FreeBSD. Months? Years? Decades? And you love using it because of whatever reason but at the same time you're feeling a bit guilty to use it all for free without giving anything back? Well now you'll have the chance to change that. We at FreeBSD are always in need of new people who are willing to spare some of their time and effort into FreeBSD development."

I will probably never get into FreeBSD development. But back when I was a complete newb and naive enough to believe that reading and groking all the FreeBSD source code was a necessity and even possible, I attempted just that. Starting with cat or something or whatever comes first alphabetically in /bin. I may have ended up on /bin/false or some junk. I never made it through /bin I assure you. At any rate, let me tell you, the code is an absolute pleasure to read.

While I am one of those GPL fanatics, I will say this, if you're not one to care about the licensing issues and want to get involved in a free software OS, then BSD is where it's at. Hands down.
