Worlds first Open Source OS CDROM

We productized for Dr. Dobb's Journal the 386BSD Release 1.0 CDROM, whiche was a multiplatform (Windows, UNIX) self booting CDROM that contained not only the runnable OS and its source, but also rich commented annotations of the kernel and the article series it was documented in.

Lynne Jolitz, co-creator of 386BSD, fondly recalls the January 1991 Dr. Dobbs Journal editorial that launched 386BSD in Lynne Jolitz DDJ Review of Lessig Free Culture book.
