Learn the history of the BSD (Berkeley Software Distributions) from one of its key developers, who brings the history to life, complete with anecdotes and footnotes to the historical narrative. The BSD community began at the UC Berkeley in the late 1970s. You'll hear about the triumphs and defeats of the project and its releases during its heyday in the 1980s. The Berkeley era concludes with the tumultuous lawsuit, ultimately settled in Berkeley's favor, which allowed the final release in 1992 of 4.4BSD-Lite, an open-source version of BSD.
