June 17, 2021

June 19th has been declared FreeBSD Day, and we hope you’ll join us in honoring the Project’s pioneering legacy and continuing impact on technology. This year, the Foundation is starting the celebration a little early.

Why June 19th

June 19, 1993 was the day the official name for FreeBSD was agreed upon. See part of the email thread here.

Help Us Celebrate

As we mentioned above, we’re kicking things off a bit early this year. If you love FreeBSD as much as we do, join us starting on Friday, July 18 to help us celebrate your favorite open source operating system by doing the following: 

  • Introduce someone to FreeBSD by showing them:
    • More about the history of FreeBSD here.
  • Send us stories of how your company uses FreeBSD to great success
  • Tell us why you love FreeBSD using #FreeBSDDay on your Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram posts
  • Check out the FreeBSD Journal and share with your friends and colleagues.
  • Consider donating to the Foundation to help us continue our support of the Project.
