  Berkeley Software Distribution - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
BSD was widely identified with the versions of Unix available for workstation-class systems, a factor attributable to its use as an easily-licensed operating system familiar to the founders of many 1980s tech startups from educational use, the most notable versions being DEC's Ultrix and Sun's SunOS.
Many corporations use BSD derived code while being able to maintain their intellectual property (IP) because of the versatility of the BSD license, which is less restrictive than the GNU General Public License used by many other free software such as the Linux and GNU projects.
DragonFly BSD is the newest of the BSDs, focusing on using a better SMP system than FreeBSD and making the kernel capable of natively supporting SSI clustering for high performance computing, although the project is still a few years away from achieving this goal and currently focused on the i386 platform.

 BSD license - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The BSD license is an acronym for the Berkeley Software Distribution license agreement, and is a leading license for free software (a subset of open source software).
The text of the license is considered to be in the public domain and thus may be modified without restriction.
This '4-clause' advertising version was removed from the official BSD license text on July 22, 1999 by William Hoskins, the director of the office of technology licensing for Berkeley, in response to a request from Richard Stallman.

 BSD License Problem - GNU Project - Free Software Foundation (FSF)
Most of them are equivalent except for details of wording, but the license used for BSD until 1999 had a special problem: the ``obnoxious BSD advertising clause''.
Thus, there is now a new BSD license which does not contain the advertising clause.
Instead of copying the BSD license from some released package--which might still have the old version of the license in it--please copy the license from X11.

 Open Sources: Voices from the Open Source Revolution
That was because the BSD systems were never released by Berkeley in a binary-only format; the distributions always contained the complete source to every part of the system.
The BSD originated networking code and supporting utilities were released in June 1989 as Networking Release 1, the first freely-redistributable code from Berkeley.
While this reintegration caused a short-term delay in the development of the various BSD systems, it was a blessing in disguise since it forced all the divergent groups to resynchronize with the three years of development that had occurred at the CSRG since the release of Networking Release 2.

Thus, this rant; as a BSD person, I want to try to explain how BSD works in a way that Linux people can absorb.
BSD is what you get when a bunch of Unix hackers sit down to try to port a Unix system to the PC.
The BSDs, in general, are very much more like traditional Unices than Linux is. A lot of that is because they're direct-line descendants of the BSD from Berkeley, which was a direct-line descendant of the original ATandT Unix.
