Not quite free.  I looked into getting BSD for a PDP-11 that someone
was giving away.  True the OS was cheap, but you needed an AT&T source
code license first.  That costs $65,000 for the first CPU!  Granted,
if you work for an institution that already has an AT&T source code
license, you may be covered by that license.

My info is ~1 year old, but I don't expect that anything changed.
