"Tucows, Inc., a leading digital distributor on the Internet, announced today the launch of its new BSD download site, the latest addition to its network of software distribution sites. Located at bsd.tucows.com or through www.tucows.com, the site is the first to support all of the OpenSource BSD titles. Originally one operating system (OS), BSD was the Berkely Software Distribution of UNIX, developed at the University of California Berkley, before being split into four flavors. The OpenSource versions are now available at bsd.tucows.com: FreeBSD, NetBSD, and OpenBSD. Users can download the full operating system as well as numerous software titles, some of which include games, file managers, graphics, and administrative tools. The launch of the BSD site re-establishes Tucows as a leading software and online resource marketplace on the Internet."

"We are moving forward as a company to strengthen our commitment to the open source community," said Scott Swedorski, Founder and Editor in Chief of Tucows. "We are striving to evolve in order to better serve our users as well as attract new ones."
