Back in the late 1980s and early 1990s some developers took it upon themselves to work on the existing BSD code and port it to modern personal computers. This project took on the name 386BSD (aka Jolix) and gave people running consumer hardware the chance to run an open source UNIX-like operating system. Over time, new projects formed to grow and evolve the 386BSD code base, giving rise to the FreeBSD and NetBSD projects. These descendants of 386BSD continue to be developed and used today. The 386bsd.org website has been set up to provide access to the project's original source code and reference articles.
