Geek Of The Week: Bill Joy

,----[ Quote ]
| After finishing his Bachelors Degree from the 
| University of Michigan, and his Masters Degree 
| from UC Berkeley, Joy wrote the original BSD 
| (Berkeley Software Distribution) UNIX 
| operating system. Many modern operating 
| systems are based on BSD, including NetBSD, 
| OpenBSD, DragonFly, Ultrix, and Mac OS X. In 
| addition to BSD, he also wrote VI (Visual text 
| editor), NFS (Network File System), and Csh (C 
| shell). Yesâ you read that correctlyâ Bill Joy 
| wrote the VI editor and the C shell!!! Any 
| UNIX-guru is more than familiar with these 
| programs. They are still widely-used today.


The Software Freedom Law Show

,----[ Quote ]
| Bradley and Karen discuss the obligations and 
| details of serving on a Board of Directors of 
| a not-for-profit organization. Following that, 
| they briefly discuss The Open Source Business 
| Conference and LibrePlanet conference.



FreeBSD 7.3 Updates BSD Legacy

,----[ Quote ]
| The FreeBSD Release Engineering Team this
| week put out the FreeBSD 7.3 release which
| is   about four months after FreeBSD 8 was
| released.
| FreeBSD is known as a solid, stable and
| reliable open source operating system. It
| should come as no surprise then that many
| users of FreeBSD don't jump to the next
| major version number right when it becomes
| available, but rather stay with the legacy
| version for a while.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
