  • 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.

Booting from the live image is painfully slow, but once installed on bare metal, it works well and is a stable, pleasant enough desktop. It boots, connects, surfs, and sleeps fine and looks good. Sure, it's aspirational and is no macOS, but it's a great demonstration of a Freebsd spin that will be of interest to enthusiasts.

The developer seems motivated and responsive to feedback. It would be good to see the project continue to develop and help the broader community and upstream with useful refinements here and there.

This project has so much promise!

I keep this installed on my secondary computer - it’s not ready as a daily driver, nor does it claim to be. While aesthetically very pleasing, there are some rough edges. The main issues I run into are in fact FreeBSD issues that I get also on GhostBSD with the Linuxulator - trying to run Linux applications. For example, SublimeText is not fully functional, and has to be restarted after installing plugins. The VSCode menu doesn’t work in the global menu, so I have to use the window menu.

I first installed this due to the promise of a creator oriented system. It’s a long way off from that goal, mainly due to a misbehaving Linuxulator - again, all FreeBSD issues. It appears some work is being done on that aspect, I’m looking forward to both that and the possibility of being able to use AppImage on FreeBSD which has a notoriously limited repository.

Having waited 8 minutes for the system to boot on a machine that Xubuntu Linux boots in 45 seconds I began to feel lumpy.

Badly stymied setting up internet connexion (couldn't).

No 'dock' down the bottom.

Awfully sorry, but that is as far as I got before I reverted to Xubuntu.

Until the boot time is significantly reduced and WiFi connexion is as easy as it is in Debian derivatives
I am not coming back.

This is a great shame as I have been wanting to experiment with a UNIX sort of system for years, and, to date,
never found one that is easy to set up and get started with.

Of course, the main problem may be that the HELP system is not up to scratch: even if I only looked for internet connexion setup . . .
