Table Notes and Explanations

(Please refer to the table below.)
  • Select view:
  • To compare the software in this project to the software available in other distributions, please see our Compare Packages page.
  • Notes: In case where multiple versions of a package are shipped with a distribution, only the default version appears in the table. For indication about the GNOME version, please check the "nautilus" and "gnome-shell" packages. The Apache web server is listed as "httpd" and the Linux kernel is listed as "linux". The KDE desktop is represented by the "kdelibs" and "plasma-desktop" packages and the Xfce desktop by the "xfdesktop" package.
  • Colour scheme: green text = latest stable version, red text = development or beta version. The function determining beta versions is not 100% reliable due to a wide variety of versioning schemes.

GhostBSD installs out of the box without problems. The X-Window system is working fine, but not in all case in the optimum resolution. the best of all is the simple fast install of applications, with a graphical package manager.

GhostBSD is an configured FreeBSD ready for the desktop, without packages failure like PC-BSD (today TrueOS).

I did not get farther than the installer. All went smooth, but then the copying of the files to the system took so long I gave up. Im am talking about hours, not minutes. And honestly, it is difficult to see if this actually boring installer does anything at all. I used MATE, but hope XCFE installs much faster.

GhostBSD was easy to install. Always let the installer know that something was happening. No black screen to leave you wondering. I think it is one of the best Distros out there. good wifi support which is lacking in a lot of distros out there. Even the sound worked. Menu a little confusing: menu said web browser; clicked it and Firefox executed but said it was not my default web browser. Have no idea what the default web browser is? No biggy. I usually try to put Vivaldi web browser on my systems these days. Really like it. Very fast. The folks at GhostBSD did a fabulous job!
