""We are using a modification of FreeBSD version 6 which provides for us the basic scaffold we need to build the appliance,"Bill Kish, CEO and CTO of Coyote Point, told InternetNews.com. "FreeBSD gives us the file system, an I/O subsystem and device drivers, Web server for our management interface and it gives us all sort of great open source tools and we use them to the fullest."

"FreeBSD 6 first came out in 2005 and has recently been superseded by FreeBSD 7, which hit version 7.1 earlier this month. Kish noted that Coyote Point will likely trail FreeBSD development by a year in order to make sure that the operating system is fully stabilized."
