Interesting... Yes... BSD is Berkeley Software Distribution, currently there are several implementation of 4.4BSD Lite (FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, DragonFlyBSD)...There are others, bsd/os/bsdi...but they're not too mainstream anymore.
BSD is a powerful operating system, it is very stable, runs on a wide variety of machine architecture (even your toaster might be able to run NetBSD) and has the capability of being just as robust (if not more than, ahem, but thats neither here nor there) than Linux.
There is a large rift in the 'unix' community about BSD and Linux...but I can only say I use them both, now. A few years ago you wouldn't have caught me dead using Linux. I hadn't used it since 1996.
Anyway...BSD is great...Check it out if you get a chance. Any of the distributions are grand...I'd suggest FreeBSD though.
