    Call me Beastie if you please.
    BSD, is a Unix operating system grounding most internet servers and still one of the most trusted OS around the globe.
    The history of Unix development at Berkeley has been recounted in detail by Marshall Kirk McKusick in his chapter in the O'Reilly book Open Sources: Voices from the Open Source Revolution. It is now possible to get a two and a half hour video in which he brings the history to life complete with anecdotes and interesting footnotes to the historical narrative.

    Marshall Kirk McKusick's work with Unix development spans some twenty years. From his first paper on the implementation of Berkeley Pascal in 1979, to his pioneering work in the eighties on the BSD Fast File System, the BSD virtual memory system, the final release from the UC Berkeley Computer Systems Research Group, 4.4 BSD Lite2, and his work on FreeBSD. A key figure in Unix and BSD development, his experiences chronicle not only the innovative technical achievements but also the interesting personalities and philosophical debates in Unix over the past twenty years. His talk covers many of these areas as he describes his years at the Computer Systems Research Group at Berkeley. - via McKusick.

    Did you know the mascot of BSD doesn't have a name? Some of us call the short-red-devil as Chuck and some (including me) called him Beastie. According to Kirk McKusick (the creator of BSD), the mascot doesn't have any name!

    Can i call the mascot Boobee-boo? What? Too girly? LOL.
