Begun in June 1993, FreeBSD aims to conform to the Single
UNIX Specification. Its kernel, C library and basic utilities
are maintained "under one roof" in synchrony, mainly under
a business-friendly licence. Originally intended only for
the PC, it is now available for other computer architectures
such as Alpha, AMD64, Itanium, and UltraSPARC. It runs
nearly two million Web sites but is also well-suited for
appliance-type devices or workstations.
Several programmers who work on various parts of the system will
be on hand. CD-ROMs provided by the FreeBSD Mall will be given
away. A computer with FreeBSD will be available for exploration.
