Re: BSD - Berkeley Software Distribution

hi steve,

BSD was widely identified with the versions of Unix available for workstation-class systems. This can be attributed to the ease with which it could be licensed and the familiarity it found among the founders of many technology companies during the 1980s. This familarity often came from using similar systemsâ notably DEC's Ultrix and Sun's SunOSâ during their education. While BSD itself was largely superseded by the System V Release 4.x and OSF/1 systems in the 1990s, in recent years modified open source versions of the codebase have seen increasing use and development.

this one is really nice reading:

kind regards
