About DesktopBSD
About DesktopBSD

DesktopBSD combines the stability of FreeBSD, the usability and functionality of KDE and the simplicity of specially developed software to provide a system that's easy to use and install.

DesktopBSD is an operating system based on FreeBSD and the FreeSBIE live CD. Its main goal is to provide a desktop operating system that is easy to use, but still has all the functionality and power of BSD. In the long term, DesktopBSD wants to build an operating system that meets most requirements desktop users have, like installing software, configuring power management or sharing an internet connection

More detail

The main goal of the DesktopBSD project is to provide a desktop operating system that's easy to use, but still has all the functionality and power of BSD.

In the long term, DesktopBSD wants to build an operating system that meets most requirements desktop users have, like installing software, configuring power management or sharing an internet connection.

To be better able to fulfill this goal, we strongly rely on users that send in feature requests, ideas for improvements or participate in development.

DesktopBSD is free software, which means it is free of charge. Also, if you're a developer and want to find out how DesktopBSD works or modify it to fit your needs, you can download the full source code.



Releases:
2008-03-24 00:00:00.0 DesktopBSD 1.7 Snapshot has been released    View
DesktopBSD 1.7 snapshot. First, remember it's an early snapshot, so there will be certainly some problems! But apart from that it's DesktopBSD based on FreeBSD 7.0-RELEASE. I did a first test, there are some minor quirks with the mounting tool and the scheduler is SCHED_4BSD, so it has got a performance drop, especially on uniprocessor systems. The first preview version will follow soon with SCHED_ULE activated and some other useful add-ons. So if you're eager to test, you're welcome, but remember it's an early test! You can download the snapshot at the usual servers and we have pre-built packages for FreeBSD 7 on the server.
