Walnut Creek CD-ROM (the corporate sponsor of everyone’s favorite server operating system — FreeBSD) is merging with BSDI. The really good news is that the codebases for BSD/OS (the primary product of BSDI) and FreeBSD will be merging, creating the new FreeBSD. The commercial components of BSD/OS will be held back, and the new company will sell FreeBSD combined with those commercial components as the new BSD/OS. This is great news for BSD fans! Daemon News has the story.
