GhostBSD 3.0 Review: FreeBSD on steroids!

Filed under
BSD

For quite sometime I was thinking of trying out a Unix operating system, something a bit different from the usual Linux distros I try out every week. I didn't want to jump directly to FreeBSD and I chose GhostGSD.

GhostBSD 3.0 is based on FreeBSD 9.1 and comes with Gnome 2, LXDE & Openbox desktop options. My review is based on installation on Asus K54C laptop with 2.2 Ghz Core i3 processor with 2 GB RAM. I used the Gnome 2.32 desktop for my regular use and review.

First of all, I downloaded the GhostBSD 32-bit ISO (1.2 GB in size). I tried creating live-USB out of it but nor unetbootin, neither imagewriter did work. So, I created a live DVD and used it to boot up the OS.
