As we delve into the realm of Open Source software, particularly exploring free operating systems, one particular entity shines brightly – FreeBSD! Renowned in the open-source community, FreeBSD continues to be a steadfast companion to millions of users and organizations globally.

Today marks a momentous occasion in the technological landscape – FreeBSD, a pioneering open-source operating system, turns 31. Its inception can be traced back to the University of California at Berkeley, where on June 19, 1993, an email exchange within an early BSD list marked the formal beginning of FreeBSD.

In 2017, the Registrar of the National Day Calendar designated June 19 as National FreeBSD Day, acknowledging its profound impact and significance in the tech realm.

Throughout its impressive 30+ year legacy, FreeBSD has rightfully earned a reputation as one of the most robust and dependable operating systems. Powering systems behind renowned services like Netflix, WhatsApp, and gaming on PlayStation 4, FreeBSD remains a cornerstone of technological functionality.

Even if you don’t identify as a developer or avid open-source aficionado, chances are you routinely engage with FreeBSD without even realizing it. Its pervasive influence often operates imperceptibly to end-users.

While our allegiance lies with Linux, our admiration for FreeBSD knows no bounds. We deeply appreciate and frequently rely on its capabilities. Expressing gratitude to the FreeBSD development community feels like an understatement; the list of commendable attributes is extensive.

We extend our thanks for providing us with one of the most secure, dependable, and user-friendly operating systems. The exceptional PKG tool delights users with its ease of use, and the vast ports collection stands as a true gem. And let’s not overlook the unparalleled ZFS file system – a true industry leader. The list could go on.

Thank you for everything! Wishing FreeBSD a Happy 31st Birthday! You’re exceptional!
