JabirOS now an independent fork of FreeBSD

Muhammadreza Haghiri, leader of the JabirOS project, has just released version 2.0.0 of his distro. This version has become an independent BSD distribution separate of FreeBSD 10-RELEASE.

We have managed to run all of FreeBSD packages for a minimalist and normal desktop computer. Also, we’ve tested some CLI software, for making a little server.
All of our tests were successful, and we’re proud of our new product.

In other news, JabirOS has just been made available for ARM board Cubieboard.
