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).

Ninety percent of the time, I can run that in one xterm while browsing and email etc normally in another xterm... efficienc(ies) I've not seen in other operating systems.


Sorry, gotta call you on this. Every modern operating system can handle this kind of multitasking with no trouble on decent hardware. Especially with an SSD.
