FreeBSD began in 1993 as a set of patches to 386BSD, a derivative of BSD UNIX®. The three coordinators, Nate Williams, Rod Grimes and Jordan Hubbard, facing a lack of support for their efforts in that project, soon decided to turn it into a complete operating system under the name "FreeBSD" with the help of a growing number of other volunteers. Walnut Creek CD-ROM (now FreeBSD Mall, a part of iXsystems), was approached and stepped up to help distribute FreeBSD and provided computer hardware and a fast internet connection to assist with development. The FreeBSD 1.0 release came out late in 1993, and this year we will celebrate the 20th anniversary of that historic event.
