The FreeBSD Open Source Operating System is one of the oldest, largest, and most successful open source projects, with a long history of innovation. FreeBSD descended from Berkeley Unix back in the early '90s, with its lineage dating back 50 years to the original UNIX. It’s known for its reliability, stability, and advanced networking and performance. Deb will take you through its long history and highlight some of the features that set FreeBSD apart from other operating systems. She'll describe how the FreeBSD Project works and how you can contribute to the Project. She will point out some of the differences between FreeBSD and Linux, and share why individuals and companies use FreeBSD. In fact, she'll explain how you are most likely using FreeBSD now! The world is better with a diversity of operating systems, so expand your knowledge by learning about another operating system to help inform what you are going to use in your work, studies, or hobbies.
