Reprinting BSD History

William and Lynne Jolitz issued a press release announcing the reprinting of their 1991-1992 series of articles Porting UNIX to the 386. From the press release: "The series covered all aspects of the project, from its inception in mid-1989 as a personal project done under the auspices of the University of California at Berkeley to its first complete operational open source release on March 17th, 1992 of 386BSD Release 0.0 -- 386BSD releases are officially 14 years old today [17 March]."

Anyone interested in Unix and BSD history will like these articles. Thus far two are online, with more to come.
