What is GhostBSD?
The GhostBSD project has two primary goals - security and usability. GhostBSD takes the FreeBSD system and pre-configures the most common software choices, fine-tunes the selection of applications for optimal performance, and provides an intuitive work environment without the need for extensive additional configuration. Rather than compiling, building, and configuring their own FreeBSD system, a GhostBSD user eliminates the hassle and enjoys a prebuilt system ready for public consumption. However, we are true to the tenets of FreeBSD, which are low resource consumption and stability. GhostBSD does not limit the users' customization options, which are available in an ordinary FreeBSD distribution. All of the tutorials, advice, and online content applicable to FreeBSD also apply to our distribution.
