    The BSDs: Sophisticated, Powerful, and (Mostly) Free

    What is BSD? If you ask a typical computer "expert," he or she is likely to reply (incorrectly!) that it is "an operating system." The correct answer, however, is more complex than that. BSD is -- among other things -- a culture, a philosophy, and a growing collection of software, most (though not all) of which is available for free and with source code.

    A rather long article but interesting enough that it's worth reading. If you're curious about the qualities of the BSD's, there are three sections for each. And if you just want a history lesson, it has interesting information.

    quite a good read, well, what I read at least. I didn't quite read the whole thing, but the descriptions of free/net/open BSD definitely contains some good knowledge.
