FreeBSD under the hood

GhostBSD is built on top of the FreeBSD Project. However, being a GTK desktop oriented OS, 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.

Look and feel

GhostBSD uses the GTK desktop environment, providing a comfortable look and feel desktop experience for the BSD, GNU/Linux and PC users, migrating to the modern BSD platform. GhostBSD comes with carefully selected minimal set of tools and desktop applications required to start using it to it's full potential.

What is BSD

Berkeley Software Distribution (BSD, sometimes called Berkeley Unix) is a Unix operating system derivative developed and distributed by the Computer Systems Research Group (CSRG) of the University of California, Berkeley, from 1977 to 1995. Today the term "BSD" is often used non-specifically to refer to any of the BSD descendants which together form a branch of the family of Unix-like operating systems. Operating systems derived from the original BSD code remain actively developed and widely used.

Development News - 5/29/2014

Well, it's been a while since we did a post on development news, and we do have a few exciting things we are working on. First and foremost is the continued development toward getting GhostBSD 4.0 released - this is a constant project and we are constantly making improvements and fixing bugs with each release.

As far as development project go, we are working on a peice of software for Google Drive that would fit seamlessly in with the OS - this project is kind of on the backburner for the time being (probably until 4.0 gets officially released).
