FreeBSD is an operating system.  It is unrelated to both DOS and Windows.
It is UNIX and can be run on the same computer as Windows or DOS.  That
is how mine is setup. It is much more stable than any of the Windows
incarnations.  And best of all it is free or can be had for nominal cost
on a CDROM.

FreeBSD is a great server operating system and it can be used as a
desktop OS.  There is a bit of a learning curve, but with some effort it
can replace Windows for most day-to-day work.  Check out our web site at for more info.  If you have further questions, please ask
and I will try to help.  Good luck.
