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. Enjoy and be sure to stop by on our forums or IRC channel to tell us what you think. We are currently on the point of setting goals for 3.0 release, so all feedback is encouraged and greatly appreciated. We hope you will have fun using GhostBSD 2.5!


GhostBSD is a community driven project to join BSD architecture, performance and security with elegant and effective desktop computing for maximum productivity and usability. We base our work on well designed and stable open source solutions to create an easy to use, familiar environment that works out of the box.

This VMWare image lets you try it out without installing it or even rebooting your machine, and works in the Free VMWare player.
