FreeBSD Essay.

Hey guys,

I'm a first year CS student at Manchester and I've been given the task
of writing a 1,000 word essay on something computer-related.  It can be
pretty much anything I want (I think).  I've decided FreeBSD is
interesting, the OS I advocate and that I shall write about this.

  I am planning to write a brief history of the four BSDs, going way
back in time (probably a few words on Ritchie, etc.) but then
concentrate on FreeBSD.

  I'm really asking if anybody can suggest any particularly interesting
topics that I can go away and research and then include in my essay.  I
guess since it's only a short essay I can't have /too/ much detail and I
didn't particularly want to try and explain something /very/ complicated
(although please suggest just the same ;).

  Somebody already suggested ``man hier'' but I'm not sure that's really
technical enough, and problably not particularly specific to FreeBSD.

  Thanks very much -- any and all suggestions are very welcome :)
