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.

GhostBSD 3.0 RC3 is now available.

The third release candidate of GhostBSD 3.0 is now supporting Gnome 2, LXDE and Openbox Desktop and it is now available for testing. This is the last development release. While this is a release candidate, it might contain some bugs and other problems, which have not been discovered during beta tests so we still only encourage you to run it only on non-critical systems.

Changes since RC2.
