GhostBSD 1.0 (AMD64) has been released. It i’s based on FreeBSD-8-amd64-stable and runs Gnome 2.28.2.
I’ve not tried it yet. Has anyone else? What do you think?
Eric Turgeon has announced that GhostBSD 1.0 will be released next week, and will have FreeBSD 8.0 as its base. The release will feature the new green theme.
Green is not really my colour, and the same applies to Ubuntu’s brown colour scheme (though it’s going to be light in 10.04), but colour schemes and themes are easy to change to one’s liking.
The GhostBSD Team have released an updated BETA (Live DVD) with in installer. GhostBSD is a Gnome based FreeBSD Live DVD (not maintained by the official FreeBSD project)
I have finish a GhostBSD live DVD with an installer on it. But the installer its not a beta or an release. it just to promote and have help to finish thy installer. All are default on it. all is programmed in python and glade. You can find all the source code in /install path. The folder are pybakend and installer.
PC-BSD is currently the best well-knows FreeBSD based OS for desktop use, but it’s KDE based. Though there’s a Gnome PBI available, those interested in Gnome as desktop interface may want to have a look at GhostBSD, the Gnome based FreeBSD system for desktop use.
GhostBSD 1.0 has the following new features: Procfs, kernel sound support. Exaile, more Gstreamer plugins, Swfdec plugin, Xchat, cpu run coller.
