PC-BSD, ideal for desktop or server
This release of PC-BSD® unhinges from the KDE Desktop Environment and adds support for GNOME, LXDE, and more! A unified Control Panel is available across all desktop environments to ensure a consistent experience configuring your desktop.
The Joule Edition was released in January 2014. It is now available for direct download from our high-speed CDN service. Feedback on your experience can always be sent to the PC-BSD Testing Mailing List. You can keep up-to-date on the latest developments in PC-BSD at the PC-BSD Blog.
PC-BSD is a desktop operating system based on FreeBSD. Rather than having the user build their own environment from the base operating system, PC-BSD aims to make the FreeBSD experience easy and achievable for the average "casual" computer user. Whether you need quick access to e-mail or a free and Open Source gaming system, PC-BSD is the desktop for you!
Simple. Stable. Secure.
From the installation of the system to its use thereafter, PC-BSD's goals are to never have a user run aground of viruses, driver issues, or anything that would impede ease-of-use and general reliability.
