DesktopBSD 1.7 – last and final version

Filed under
BSD

Peter Hofer, founder of DesktopBSD, has announced DesktopBSD 1.7. This new release comes with FreeBSD 7.2-RELEASE-p3 as base system and KDE 3.5.10 as desktop environment and includes a large number of pre-installed applications. The easy-to-use graphical installer and utilities allow for a simple installation and configuration process.

Please note that DesktopBSD will not be maintained any more by Peter:

"This is the last and final release of the DesktopBSD project I find myself having less and less time to spare lately and no longer desire to keep developing and maintaining this project. However, because DesktopBSD is based entirely on FreeBSD, further support for the operating system and availability of up-to-date software is ensured."
