If you're going to correct the man, at least be accurate. BSD stands for
Berkeley Software Distribution. The Berkeley comes from University of
California at Berkeley which is where BSD was originally developed as a
packaging of Bell Labs' Unix with modifications made at UCB and with a few
other bits and pieces, including a crappy editor written by some guy name Joy.
