  BSD Unix
  
      (BSD) A family of Unix versions developed
     by Bill Joy and others at the University of California at
     Berkeley, originally for the DEC VAX and PDP-11
     computers, and subsequently ported to almost all modern
     general-purpose computers.  BSD Unix incorporates paged
     virtual memory, TCP/IP networking enhancements and many
     other features.
  
     BSD UNIX 4.0 was released on 1980-10-19.  The BSD versions
     (4.1, 4.2, and 4.3) and the commercial versions derived from
     them ({SunOS, ULTRIX, Mt. Xinu, Dynix) held the
     technical lead in the Unix world until AT&T's successful
     standardisation efforts after about 1986, and are still widely
     popular.
