Development Update

September 22, 2016. A draft of an updated DesktopBSD roadmap consisting of a very specific development plan (with a few surprises!) has been posted on the forums. We are seeking feedback from DesktopBSD users and the BSD community at large. If you have not registered on the forums, please sign up and leave us your comments.
DesktopBSD is an open source operating system that aims at being a stable and powerful operating system for desktop users. Combining the stability of FreeBSD, the usability and functionality of KDE and the simplicity of specially developed software to provide a system that's easy to use and install, in a project with two primary goals - security and usability.
What is BSD? The original BSD operating system was developed by the Berkeley University in California. Berkeley Software Distribution (BSD) is an Unix operating system derivative developed and distributed by the Computer Systems Research Group of the University of California, Berkeley, from 1977 to 1995. Today the term "BSD" is often used non-specifically to refer to any of the BSD descendants which together form a branch of the family of Unix-like operating systems. Operating systems derived from the original BSD code remain actively developed and widely used.
Why DesktopBSD?
  • Works out of the box, with full multimedia support and extremely easy to use.
  • An operating system that respects your privacy, free of cost and open source for life.
  • Users are encouraged to send feedback, their ideas will be heard.
  • Provides a large software content ready to be installed from the Software manager.
  • Modern, elegant and comfortable operating system which is both powerful and easy.
