About Free BSD
Briefly, Free BSD is a Unix-like operating system for the i386, IA-64, PC-98, Alpha/AXP, and Ultra SPARC platforms based on U.C. Berkeley's 4.4BSD-Lite release, with some 4.4BSD-Lite2 enhancements. It is also based indirectly on William Jolitz's port of U.C. Berkeley's Net/2 to the i386, known as 386 BSD, though very little of the 386 BSD code remains. Get more information on Free BSD on their website.
Free BSD is used by companies, Internet Service Providers, researchers, computer professionals, students and home users all over the world in their work, education and recreation.
Free BSD's project goals:
The Free BSD code falls under the GNU General Public License (GPL) or GNU Library General Public License (LGPL), which comes with slightly more strings attached, though at least on the side of enforced access rather than the usual opposite. Due to the additional complexities that can evolve in the commercial use of GPL software, Free BSD does, however endeavor to replace such software with submissions under the more relaxed Free BSD license, whenever possible.
