What's this then?
xBSD.net is a private site owned by Sven Esbjerg. It has no
affiliation with any of the official BSD groups. I am however
a great fan of BSD Operating Systems. I bought this domain to
use for my personal mail and my homepage.
What is BSD? BSD is Berkely Standard Distribution which was
Berkely University's enhancenments to AT&T Unix. This
distrubution became independent of AT&T after a legal
dispute. This has lead to some commercial distributions of Unix
and BSD and some free versions of BSD. The BSD's I use are
the free ones namely FreeBSD, NetBSD and OpenBSD.
The BSD distributions are covered by a very liberal
license. It basicly states that you can freely redistribute
and modify both sourcecode and binaries. However, you have to
pay respect to the original authors in your product by
including the copyright notice.
You can download or install BSD directly from the net. You can
also support the projects by buying CD/DVD's with a
distribution. I recommend that you try it. If you like and
use it a lot why not support the BSD teams? Buy CD's or buy
some T-shirts, coffee mugs or whatever you want. Remember that
these people supply you with free quality software!
