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).

Oh, and Bitrig project is there to spoil all OBSD hard work and great achievements and turn it all to dust, on their own land.

But ... I shall be citing the "bible":
"5.2 - Why do I need to compile the system from source?
Actually, you very possibly do not. "

"5.6 - Why do I need a custom kernel?
Actually, you probably don't. "

and in a case you think you should fork the OS:

"It is assumed you have read the above, and really enjoy pain."
