Recent Usenet news and announcements about *BSD are now available on a separate page. At the time of writing about 1,000 *BSD articles are sent each month.
386BSD, FreeBSD, NetBSD and OpenBSD are the main systems in *BSD. 386BSD is derived from 4.3BSD, and FreeBSD & NetBSD are derived from 386BSD. However, FreeBSD, NetBSD & OpenBSD have moved to the 4.4BSD-Lite source distribution as their base code. For a rough picture of the BSD Family Tree, click here.
If you have any questions about/problems with the systems, one of the best places to look are the Answers to Frequently Asked Questions for FreeBSD. I can't see to find any FAQ information for NetBSD - wkt
Several mailing lists are available for ongoing development of FreeBSD and NetBSD.
Both FreeBSD and NetBSD are available on a number of CD-ROMs.
Motif is available for the *BSDs; you have to pay for it though.
Minnie.tuhs.org keeps a small amount of *BSD-related stuff which can be obtained via anonymous ftp.
Minnie archives the Usenet news about *BSD. This is now only obtainable through a Web interface.
Many other machines in the world have *BSD stuff available for anonymous ftp. There are probably some Gopher sites, but I don't know about them as yet.
