BSD on the Desktop

BSD is the Berkeley System / Software Distribution, which is a popular variant/branch of UNIX. It has already reached the average home computer several times in the past, as opposed to being used in machine rooms (e.g. data centres, computational servers). DesktopBSD 1.0 is a new endeavour (yet another distribution), currently at a release candidate phase. It was brought to many people’s attention via Slashdot.

All screenshots come from the Open Source Directory (feed: RSS feed), which is an entertaining site at best and informative at the least. It provides a clear and extensive previews of Linux distributions, thereby helping people select the right one. Screenshots are taken from the very early installation stages (BIOS level) until a running state is reached. There are also many ‘Grand Tours’ of a variety of *NIX distributions.
