M. Warner Losh, An Overview of FreeBSD/mips, AsiaBSDCon2009:
Embedded FreeBSD has been expanding its reach over the past few years. While only recently committed to the tree, the FreeBSD/mips port's history extends back over a decade. FreeBSD has been running on the MIPS architecture since the FreeBSD 3.x time frame (1999!). Numerous efforts over the years have been made to get FreeBSD running on MIPS hardware. These efforts don't start from scratch but reuse past efforts and code from other systems. Recently all these efforts have come together, resulting in FreeBSD support for MIPS in 8.0.

The same currents that have caused the FreeBSD/mips port to come together after many years have also been pushing development of other areas important to the embedded world. A number of new devices found only in embedded systems have been added to FreeBSD. Hardware vendors are starting to fund FreeBSD improvement projects (mostly for their hardware). Build system improvements have made it easier to deploy FreeBSD in smaller and smaller footprints. All of these changes have made FreeBSD a more viable embedded platform.
