Back to Beginnings for FreeBSD

“Bob Bruce, founder of Walnut Creek CDROM–the company that in 1993 first published FreeBSD–will once again be in charge of the core FreeBSD business. That’s because the current owner, Wind River Systems, announced Monday that it is selling off its assets related to FreeBSD, an open-source version of Unix. Bruce has also become CEO of FreeBSD Mall, the new name of Walnut Creek CDROM and one of the FreeBSD assets that Wind River has owned.” This sounds like good news for FreeBSD, especially when announced only one week before the expected FreeBSD 4.5 release.
