14 July, 1992

386BSD, also referred to as Jolix, was released by developers Lynne Jolitz and William Jolitz. It was a free Unix-like operating system based on BSD and ran on PCs that had the Intel 386 microprocessor.

The release of Jolix launched the Open Source operating system revolution and prompted Linus Torvalds to release his Linux operating system soon afterwards.
