386BSD – a derived from 4.3BSD, the first open source Berkeley UNIX operating system. It was the progenitor of Linux, iOS, and Android. Beginning with “A Modest Proposal” in 1989, 386BSD broke from proprietary systems by having publicly accessible code and documentation.

386BSD Release 0.0 was distributed in 1993 in tandem to the popular “Porting Unix to the 386” article series published in Dr. Dobb’s Journal.
Release 0.1 quickly followed, enhanced with contributions throughout the globe.

386BSD Release 1.0, aka Jolix, was a break from earlier Berkeley UNIX systems through use of a modular architecture. 386BSD Release 2.0 built upon the modular framework to create self-healing components. Each release introduced novel mechanisms from role-based security to polymorphic protocols.

386BSD.org provides the opportunity to interact with the original source, articles and supporting materials, and a live demo of 386BSD Release 2.0.

386BSD is a mother of free BSD systems today, such as: BSD/386, NetBSD, FreeBSD, BSD/OS, Darwin, OpenBSD and others.

The project authors are Lynne and William Jolitz.

TinyBSD – a set of tools and shell scripts, part of the FreeBSD base system (/usr/src/tools/tools), designed to make the development of embedded systems based on FreeBSD as easy as possible. The TinyBSD script can be used on FreeBSD 5.x, 6.x and 7.x and 8-CURRENT to created a mini FreeBSD version.

The project is financed by Google Summer of Code 2008. The successor of NanoBSD, largely based on its code, supported by the FreeBSD team. It is available in the FreeBSD CVS repository. It allows you to reduce the system to about 30Mb. The same as its prototype allows you to customize the system kernel and ports – not packages (pkg) as in NanoBSD. It contains six pre-defined configurations, such as Wireless Acess Point, VPN, Firewall, bridge, wrap, default, and minimal.

The latest TinyBSD 8.2 Image was built on a 8.2-STABLE system. This is a general purpose TinyBSD image file designed to be written to a 40 – 42MB CF card. It is intended to act as a Wireless or Wired router/firewall.

Developers of the TinyBSD project are Jean Milanez Melo and Patrick Tracanelli.
