The FreeBSD Ports Collection

Satoshi Asami, The FreeBSD Project


FreeBSD is an open source operating system based on 4.4BSD-Lite2, a version of UNIX from the University of California at Berkeley. It is maintained by a group of volunteers from around the world. In addition to providing a complete operating system, the FreeBSD project supports an extensive collection of sanctioned third-party software called the Ports Collection, many of which were contributed by the users. In addition to the source form, most of the ports are provided as binary packages too.
