Tired of the seemingly endless stream of “Is Linux Ready For The Desktop” articles? OK, I have a question for you: Is BSD ready for the desktop? DesktopBSD says “We’re getting there”.
DesktopBSD’s main goal is to provide a desktop operating system that’s easy to use, but still has all the functionality and power of BSD. In the long term, DesktopBSD wants to build an operating system that meets most requirements desktop users have, like installing software, configuring power management or sharing an internet connection.
From the site, it looks like they’re putting a lot of effort into putting a nice desktop together. I don’t think Dave’s going to be shipping back his OSX Tiger CD for a while yet, though.
