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 "plasma-desktop" package 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.

It very good os when installing alone on its own, had no problems running in virtual machine for testing at all.
over on-top of big linux arch respin from brazil south america. Hope ghostBSD, BSDunix gets more updates later.
WiFi was only issue On my i7 zen book number fifteen edition. Tried live test afterwards and wifi worked,
must have something to do with virtual machine i'm sure as drivers run great off-of-virtualbox.
Wanted to try something new from Canada after slackwares vector linux went away not too long ago.
How sad for vector linux, very happy to see canada is producing and making BSDunix and Linux
operating systems. Many other countries opting out of linux scene too perticularly in oriental east
world, such as philippines, japan, korea, thailand, taiwan, use to be many diffrent linux arouns world
coming out everywhere, many have slowed production or are not making no more.
:( *frown* face. *Saluting* good luck Canada!

The installation of GhostBSD on VirtualBox was a seamless process without any issues using the default settings. With 8 GB of RAM and 8 CPUs allocated, along with 20 GB of storage, the system performed faster than my host machine. It exhibited remarkable responsiveness for every task I attempted. In my opinion, GhostBSD stands out as the finest Unix-based system built upon FreeBSD. Compared to the tedious installation and configuration process of plain FreeBSD, GhostBSD eliminates a significant amount of hassle. Kudos to the exceptional work by the GhostBSD team.

I first tried ghost bsd in 2019 or rather I wanted. After installation, it turned out that it does not handle nt partitions. Of course, it could have been installed, but I wasnt adept at bsds at the time.
I later installed it again in 2023, then on a new PC. Unfortunately, my graphics core was not handled by ghost (free) bsd, so I bought an nvidia quadro vga for only $20.
There is a picture, but it could be sharper! The picture is better under Linux!
Installation was easy. Octopkg is integrated, which is a graphical 1 click install style package management and installation application.
There was 1 error: That the data copied to the nt partition is deleted after restarting or turning it off and then on. According to the freebsd forum, this is a bug that can be fixed by umounting the nt partition before turning it off.
The Xscavenger game exits after 1 minute.
