FuryBSD – an open source operating system based on FreeBSD, and targeted to laptops and desktops users.

This is an attempt to reinvigorate the spirit of other easy-to-use FreeBSD-based projects from the past (such as PC-BSD and TrueOS), but also provides added convenience of a USB/DVD hybrid image. The project provides separate live images with the Xfce and KDE Plasma desktops.

FuryBSD is free and can be distributed freely under the BSD license.

The latest version is based on FreeBSD 4.x 5.x and 6.x. This mini system can fit on 16Mb Flash. MiniBSD represents a compromise between a full FreeBSD system and a minimal system like PicoBSD.

MiniBSD consists of a series of sh scripts which support users in creating a small image containing a fully functional FreeBSD operating system. MiniBSD is designed for storage media such as smart-media or flash-cards that can be used in devices like epia, soekris or other.

PC-BSD – an open-source operating system based on FreeBSD and fully compatible with it. PC-BSD is easy to use and targeted to home and office users.

It has an easy-to-use graphical installer, the default environment is KDE, but the installer (since version 9.0) also offers GNOME, LXDE and Xfce desktops. From 2014, the project developed own, Qt based with Fluxbox window manager, desktop environment called Lumina.

PC-BSD uses the “.pbi” packages. The package manager allows you to install packages with dependencies as well.
Unlike FreeBSD and Linux, the “.pbi” packages contain all the libraries needed to run the program, so the manager installs each one separately.
The advantage of this policy is ease of installing packages, the disadvantage of their large size.

PC-BSD was offered in form of hybrid DVD/USB installation media.

In August 2016, PC-BSD changed its name to TrueOS and is a rolling release operating system.

The project founder is Kris Moore.
