GhostBSD provides a simple desktop-oriented operating system based on FreeBSD with MATE, OpenRC, and OS packages for simplicity.
GhostBSD has a selection of commonly used software preinstalled and required to start using it to its full potential.
GhostBSD uses the GTK environment to provide beautiful looks and a comfortable experience on the modern BSD platform offering a natural and native Unix work environment.
GhostBSD is built on top of FreeBSD code, and its roots go back to the University of California Berkeley Unix Research. Historically it was referred to as "BSD Unix" or "Berkeley Unix." However, today it is called BSD for Berkeley Software Distribution.
