What is FreeBSD?
The FreeBSD project is one of the oldest open source operating systems currently available for daily use. It is a direct descendant of the genuine <trademark class="registered">UNIX</trademark> so it could be claimed that it is a true <trademark class="registered">UNIX</trademark> although licensing issues do not permit that. The start of the project dates back to the early 1990's when a crew of fellow BSD users patched the 386BSD operating system. Based on this patchkit a new operating system arose named FreeBSD for its liberal license. Another group created the NetBSD operating system with different goals in mind. We will focus on FreeBSD.
FreeBSD is a modern <trademark class="registered">UNIX</trademark>-based operating system with all the features of <trademark class="registered">UNIX</trademark>. Preemptive multitasking, multiuser facilities, TCP/IP networking, memory protection, symmetric multiprocessing support, virtual memory with merged VM and buffer cache, they are all there. One of the interesting and extremely useful features is the ability to emulate other <trademark class="registered">UNIX</trademark>-like operating systems. As of December 2006 and 7-CURRENT development, the following emulation functionalities are supported:
FreeBSD/i386 emulation on FreeBSD/amd64
FreeBSD/i386 emulation on FreeBSD/ia64
<trademark class="registered">Linux</trademark>-emulation of <trademark class="registered">Linux</trademark> operating system on FreeBSD
NDIS-emulation of Windows networking drivers interface
NetBSD-emulation of NetBSD operating system
