PC-BSD 7.1 Galileo - Review

Filed under
BSD

The world of open-source desktop revolves mainly around Linux. Still, there are several other players that you may want to consider as your desktop distribution. One of them is Open Solaris, trying to nibble into the free market with the 2008.11 version, featuring a Gnome desktop. Another one is PC-BSD, a desktop oriented flavor of the UNIX-based BSD operating system. With the recently released Galileo and KDE 4.2.2 environment, PC-BSD is definitely worth testing.

Installation - Lucky number three

PC-BSD boots using a simple text bootloader featuring mind-blowing command-line graphics.

After a while, you will reach the installation menu. The menu runs in 1024x768px resolution and is somewhat reminiscent of the openSUSE installation, color- and font-wise. However, the layout is somewhat jumbled.

The first steps would be to choose language, keyboard settings and timezone.

Between Linux Mint 18 and Fedora 24, we reckon it’s exciting times in the Linux world. With the exception and onset of the boring world of vanilla Ubuntu releases, Linux feels reinvigorated and fresh once again. Jump on board, because it can only get better from here. Read more
