How it works

Full Unix for the BSD, This is the basis for what is now Apple Mac OSX , FreeBSD, NetBSD, PCBSD, just about every major OS today.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

Distributing 100,000 copying over the Internet in the first 3 Day, to ensure this information was to never be removed. It was the first real working example of Unix source code made available publically.
