386BSD is a free software/open source port of the BSD UNIX operating system to the Intel 80386 processor, orignally released in June 1992. It was derived from the generally available parts of the Berkeley Net Release/2.

This port was a step in the removal of code proprietary to AT&T, the presence of which was a barrier to the ability of people to legally and freely redistribute the operating system code.

386BSD has been superseded by FreeBSD, NetBSD and OpenBSD.
