386BSD definition operating system
(Or "jolix /joh'liks/) A free software port
originally derived from the generally available parts of the "Berkeley Net Release/2" to the Intel i386
architecture by William Jolitz and friends. The name Jolix is used to differentiate it from BSDI
's port based on the same source tape, which is called BSD/386.
Many new and innovative features were added to 386BSD following its original release in June 1992. An unofficial patchkit, available from many anonymous FTP
archives, solves many of the problems associated with 386BSD Version 0.1. In addition, many common Unix packages have been ported.
386BSD has been superseded by FreeBSD
