Product Description
GhostBSD is a user friendly desktop operating system based on FreeBSD, which attempts to conform to the Single Unix Specification. FreeBSD is known for its stability and security in server environments, which incidentally provides an excellent base for a desktop operating system. GhostBSD is base on well designed and thoroughly tested open source solutions to create an easy to use familiar workspace, that can be used at home and in office environment. The live environment can also be used to rescue data. It supports the most popular lightweight and fully-featured desktop environments (including Gnome, Mate, XFCE, LXDE, and Openbox), FreeBSD next generation package management system, Apache Open Office, Libre Office, LibreCAD, Eclipse / Anjuta development environments (for C, C++, Java, Javascript, Jala, and Python), and more.

The GhostBSD project has two primary goals - security and usability. GhostBSD takes the FreeBSD system and pre-configures the most common software choices, fine-tunes the selection of applications for optimal performance, and provides an intuitive work environment without the need for extensive additional configuration. Rather than compiling, building, and configuring their own FreeBSD system, a GhostBSD user eliminates the hassle and enjoys a prebuilt system ready for public consumption. However, we are true to the tenets of FreeBSD, which are low resource consumption and stability. GhostBSD does not limit the users' customization options, which are available in an ordinary FreeBSD distribution. All of the tutorials, advice, and online content applicable to FreeBSD also apply to our distribution.
