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).

Lol. Some parts are kinda old, but any technical details should be valid. They do a good job of updating the handbook when things change.

Pity XMMS is down, because they had a little rant about how XMMS is still being used.

Great little amp like the Winamp 2 series before > version 2.81 (they started adding all the useless library features). still makes 8 million a year last time anybody highlighted it.
