PC-BSD 7.1 Galileo Edition Review

Filed under
BSD

PC-BSD 7.1 is a desktop operating system aimed at the normal user and is based on FreeBSD. It enables fast installation of software and getting a working desktop running fast. It can be installed as a Desktop or as a server, however I fail to see the point of the server install for a desktop OS.

It can be installed by dvd/usb or install via network and PC-BSD can perform a normal fresh install or system upgrade (Unable to test) can be selected in the system installer. PC-BSD allows you to install to these file systems:

UFS2
UFS2 + Soft Updates (default)
UFS2 + Journaling.

PC-BSD give you a list of programs that you can install along with the system, these are the ones I installed.

Amarok
Firefox
The Gimp
K3B
Desktop Toys
Thunderbird
VLC

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
