Well, technically no. BSD predates linux, but linux predates FreeBSD by a few years. In general though, linux is a reimplimentation and they've had a habit of changing things in the process, but for any given interface it's not generally accurate to say linux is the reimplimentation....sometimes they are, sometimes they aren't. -- Thanks, Josh Paetzel
