Daemon News: Now is the Time

“At present there is an obvious dearth of third party

attracting some of these users to OSS operating systems and it’s a
certainty that the BSDs will see some spillover from the publicity

has to promote the BSDs. If you hear of someone who wants to try
Linux, suggest to them that they try your favorite BSD flavor.”
