TrueOS is an operating system for desktops and servers based on FreeBSD's development branch. TrueOS uses FreeBSD at its core and is perhaps best known for making it possible to quickly install a FreeBSD-based desktop system. The focus of TrueOS is changing now, with the project forking further from FreeBSD. "TrueOS will become a downstream fork that will build on FreeBSD by integrating new software technologies like OpenRC and LibreSSL. Work has already begun which allows TrueOS to be used as a base platform for other projects, including JSON-based manifests, integrated Poudriere / pkg tools and much more. We're planning on a six month release cycle to keep development moving and fresh, allowing us to bring you hot new features to ZFS, bhyve and related tools in a timely manner. This makes TrueOS the perfect fit to serve as the basis for building other distributions." In the place of TrueOS's desktop edition, the team has reported a separate project, called Project Trident will become available. Further information ca be found in the project's blog post.
