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).

OpenBSD summary seems like an afterthought, but not much of a surprise since the author states his bias/preferences at the end.

Nothing new, but a good primer for people unfamiliar with the BSDs, I suppose. Thanks for sharing.

Yeah, OpenBSD doesn't get a lot of love.

Good solid OS, lacks features for sure.
