This is the second time I've seen this misunderstanding (FreeBSD and other
distributions of Linux) on this list in a matter of hours.
FreeBSD is not a distribution of Linux: it's a separate operating system,
descended from one of the branches of Unix - the OS, originally from Bell
Labs, which has sired many others and inspired many more, including Linux.
There is a lot more to Unix and Unix-like operating systems - even just the
freely-available ones - than only Linux.
