FreeBSDFree BSD, Free-BSD, Freebased, Freebase, Freest, Freebases, Freebies, Freebie's [10] is an advanced operating system for Intel ia32
compatible, DEC Alpha, and PC-98 architectures. It is derived from BSD
UNIX, the version of UNIX developed at the University of California,
Berkeley. It is developed and maintained by a large team of
individuals. Additional platforms are in various stages of
development.
