   FreeBSD's development began in 1993 with a quickly growing,
   unofficial patchkit maintained by users of the 386BSD operating
   system. This patchkit forked from 386BSD and grew into an operating
   system taken from U.C. Berkeley's 4.3BSD-Lite (Net/2) tape with many
   386BSD components and code from the Free Software Foundation. 


   The Free Software Foundation (FSF) is a non-profit corporation
   founded by Richard Stallman on 4 October 1985 to support the free
   software movement, a copyleft-based movement which aims to promote
   the universal freedom to distribute and modify computer software
   without restriction . 

Where's Tim when you need 'im?

Information technology and business are becoming inextricably interwoven. I
don't think anybody can talk meaningfully about one without the talking
about the other.
