TSR - The Server Room Show - Episode 30 - History of BSD - Part I.

This episode gives credit and relies heavily/completely on the presentations, notes and speeches done and copyrighted fully of Dr Marshall Kirk Mckusick who is a renowned computer scientist, known for his extensive work on BSD UNIX, from the 1980s to FreeBSD in the present day.

Much of the information in this shownotes
 can be found in the chapter on Berkeley UNIX
 (pages 31-46) in the book:

 Open Sources:  Voices from the
 Open Source Revolution

If You are interested further as this episodes and shownotes are a very stripped down version of the work of Dr Marshall Kirk Mckusick´s notes and presentations Please consider purchasing His DVD of the History Of Berkeley Software Distributions from which this episode excerpts its facts and figures and historical recounting.
It is a near 4 hours long 2 parts presentation which recounts the History of BSD from the early days and another lecture about the Modern FreeBSD. It is great fun to watch and own and definitely a better recount of the events with many fun facts and personality as I could ever do myself.
