The home of FreeBSD is http://www.freebsd.org
BSD has long been there before Linux and still is one of the major players in the unix world.
Some noteworthy FreeBSD-derived operating system distributions are:
- pfsense - the best open source router and firewall I have ever seen
- freenas - an open source storage platform
In FreeBSD there are many things slightly different compared to GNU Linux. I'm starting right here to document what I had to lookup because some of the well known Linux commands won't work with BSD.
