History of Debian Freebsd
A Brief History of the Debian/FreeBSD Project Background and Motivation In the mid-90’s, I did part-time work at a small ISP called quic.net. We used Linux for nearly everything, and I was the main system administrator making kernel and OS decisions. We had switched from RedHat to Debian sometime around the time RedHat Linux 5.0 came out. The quality difference was impressive, and after a few years of using it, we were very satisfied with Debian.
