Top left of the page:

As far as I can tell, the word "it": 

* refers to             BSD
* does not refer to FreeBSD. 

Three points in time: 

    Berkeley Software Distribution based off of UNIX

    "… derived from BSD, …"

    "…  FreeBSD's code base has undergone over thirty years of …"

…   then (I'll not guess when) ambiguity increased, 
    eventually the first paragraph at the home page became wrong. 



* shorten or remove the paragraph

* make better use of the About page

* do not attempt to cram the historic relationship between BSD and FreeBSD
  into the home page

* link from somewhere (maybe the About page) to the 
  Foundation-provided timeline

* beware of ambiguous words such as "it".
