What did William and Lynne do with 386BSD?
William and Lynne released 386BSD many times, including a published CDROM on very little resources. According to the website:
386BSD was first released inside the University of California and the US Department of Energy in 1989. Major parts were released in the Networking II release that was labelled by University of Californa as "freely redistributeable". Release 0.0 was made following to satisfy the obligation to the readers of the porting series that an operational version of the code as an example be available under the same terms. Release 0.1 eliminated many issues faced in 0.0 release. Release 0.2 never happened with inability of formal release handoff to an institution. Release 1.0 formalized the modular environment that was intended for the final work with the University of California but released as a magazine project instead.

A very rare thing occured with the intimate creation of BSD while an article series was being written at the same time. Jon Erickson, editor of DDJ, let us chronicle the effort as it came together in the University offices, receiving some of the articles directly via the net from there.
