GhostBSD 2.5 (lxde)

After months of work, the official final release of GhostBSD 2.5 is finally here! Many bugs have been fixed and many parts of the system updated, tweaked and fine-tuned. We now have two main branches of the system – one is based on GNOME desktop, the other on LXDE. Both fit perfectly on their respective media and are available in amd64 and i386 editions which can be downloaded in the form of CD/DVD or USB images.
