Released: VirtualBSD 8.1

It’s been awhile since the last release of VirtualBSD, but Reece Tarbert has announced the availability of VirtualBSD 8.1.

VirtualBSD is a desktop ready FreeBSD 8.1 RELEASE, in the form of a VMware appliance, based on the Xfce 4.6 Desktop Environment. Many of the most common and useful applications are ready to run, and the desktop has been styled to resemble a certain OS from Cupertino.

Due to the nature of VirtualBSD being a virtual machine, there are a few issue with regards to upgrading, updating and adding software, as Reece mentions. These may be some shortcoming, but, hey, it’s a great way to explore FreeBSD.
