Linux Distribution: FreeSBIE
Url: http://www.freesbie.org/

 
FreeSBIE is a LiveCD based on the FreeBSD Operating system, or even easier, a FreeBSD-based operating system that works directly from a CD, without touching your hard drive.

About FreeSBIE
We've just released a FreeSBIE beta distribution, to test the latest improvements of the project and to have more feedback preparing next official release. We also want to test a new bittorrent tracker, so this release will be available only via bittorrent. The link for the torrent file.
An Hungarian magazine, called CHIP, published in August a special version of FreeSBIE. It was a 300 MB image with hungarian localizationgraphical desktop (xfce4, mozilla, xchat, xmms, mplayer) for testing FreeBSD, and small applications for system (memtest, antivirus).

Releases:
2007-01-16 00:00:00.0 FreeSBIE 2.0 is available    View
FreeSBIE 2.0-RELEASE (codename Clint Eastwood) is based on the fresh FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE, both in terms of sources and packages.
2006-11-28 00:00:00.0 FreeSBIE 2.0 RC1 is available    View
The circumstances make me release a fourth ISO image which is not FreeSBIE 2.0, but FreeSBIE 2.0-RC1 (Release Candidate 1). This is due to the number of bugs which had been fixed after 2.0-BETA was released. If no major bugs are found, FreeSBIE 2.0 is going to be released not too long after FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE has been released. Hopefully you will be able to put a FreeSBIE 2.0 CD-ROM under your Christmas tree. FreeSBIE 2.0-RC1 is based on the RELENG_6_2 branch of the FreeBSD source tree and on the RELEASE_6_2_0 branch of the ports tree.
2006-11-13 00:00:00.0 FreeSBIE 2.0 BETA has been released    View
This is the third of a series of four ISO images: GMV, LVC, EW, and CE, with CE being hopefully FreeSBIE 2.0. The image being release today is EW, which is FreeSBIE 2.0-BETA. FreeSBIE 2.0-BETA is based on the RELENG_6 branch of FreeBSD as it was on 20061008. Ports are based on the RELEASE_6_2_0 branch. ... A known bug consists in the 'freesbie' user not allowed to use ping(8). Another problem is the date after boot: it is set to Epoch. This is still an issue in FreeSBIE-2.0-BETA but will be solved in future ISO images.
2006-10-25 00:00:00.0 FreeSBIE 2.0 PRE-BETA is available now    View
This is the second of a series of four ISO images: GMV, LVC, EW, and CE, with CE being hopefully FreeSBIE 2.0. Similarly to GMV, LVC is based on the HEAD branch of FreeBSD, so on FreeBSD 7-CURRENT. Ports are approximately from the same date. EW and CE, on the other hand, will be based on the RELENG_6_2 branch, both for sources and for ports.
