The FreeBSD Open Source Operating System is one of the oldest, largest, and most successful open source projects, with a long history of innovation. FreeBSD descended from Berkeley Unix back in the early '90s, with its lineage dating back 50 years to the original UNIX.  Deb & Ed will take you through the history and highlight some of the features FreeBSD is known for, such as OpenZFS, DTrace, and Jails. They will point out differences between FreeBSD and Linux, and share why people and companies use FreeBSD. Deb & Ed want to share this information with the Linux community to encourage working together. While recognizing that FreeBSD is a minority in the Linux world, including their diverse voices in discussions, will help strengthen the open source ecosystem.
