about FreeBSD

What is FreeBSD?FreeBSD is an advanced operating system for x86 compatible (including Pentium® and Athlon™), amd64 compatible (including Opteron™, Athlon™64, and EM64T), ARM, IA-64, PC-98 and UltraSPARC® architectures. It is derived from BSD, the version of UNIX® developed at the University of California, Berkeley. It is developed and maintained by a large team of individuals. Additional platforms are in various stages of development.Cutting edge featuresFreeBSD offers advanced networking, performance, security and compatibility features today which are still missing in other operating systems, even some of the best commercial ones. FreeBSD makes an ideal Internet or Intranet server. It provides robust network services under the heaviest loads and uses memory efficiently to maintain good response times for thousands of simultaneous user processes.Run a huge number of applicationsThe quality of FreeBSD combined with today’s low-cost, high-speed PC hardware makes FreeBSD a very economical alternative to commercial UNIX® workstations. It is well-suited for a great number of both desktop and server applications. FreeBSD can be installed from a variety of media including CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, floppy disk, magnetic tape, an MS-DOS® partition, or if you have a network connection, you can install it directly over anonymous FTP or NFS. All you need are these directions. While you might expect an operating system with these features to sell for a high price, FreeBSD is available free of charge and comes with full source code.  Source: http://www.freebsd.org/about.html
