JabirOS – an independent operating system, forked from FreeBSD 10.

JabirOS provides an installable/live iso image with pre-installed Xfce desktop environment and a basic set of user’s applications.
The system’s kernel is also independent, but forked from FreeBSD.

The default package manager is ‚pkg2ng’ – a fork of ‚pkg’, which manages ‘txz’ packages.
The ‚pkg’ package manager is also available, after installing the system on a hard drive.

The project started in 2012.
The first version of of JabirOS 1.0 was based on a Linux distribution Ubuntu.

JabirOS 2.0 is originally based on FreeBSD, but completely forked from it and has its own packages and kernel.
JabirOS 2 was created for machines: x86_64, ARM Cubieboard and Raspberry Pi.

Features:
– Desktop oriented Unix OS
– Suitable for all computers
– Optimized for AMD64 (PC) and ARM(SBC boards, Tablets, etc.)
– Optimized for server

PicoBSD

PicoBSD

Web site: people.freebsd.org/~picobsd/old/picobsd.html
Origin: Poland
Category: Desktop
Desktop environment: text
Architecture: x86
Based on: FreeBSD
Wikipedia: PicoBSD
Media: Live Floppy
The last version | Released: 2.2.5 | March 26, 1998

PicoBSD – a one floppy version of FreeBSD, configured mainly for networking applications. It can be used as a router or firewall, or kind of a fixit floppy (or all of them).

Minimal requirements:
– 386SX CPU or better (there is an FPU emulator in kernel)
– 10MB RAM – the more the better. If you have an HDD, you can make a swap partition or swap file (using vnode driver and vnconfig). Then you probably will be able to run with ca. 6MB only
– Modem sitting on COM1-COM4 (default is to use COM2), if you want to have a PPP connection
– Network card: compatible with NE2000, PCI Intel, 3Com 3c509 or with DEC chipsets (ed, ep, fxp and de drivers). The kernel supports two of them (i.e. 7 total) plus two PPP connections (tun interfaces). So you can easily build something like router with as many as 9 outlets

The project developer is Andrzej Bialecki, and newer version is Dinesh Nair.
The latest floppies of version 0.42 were built from 3.0-current sources. Though they provide more features, they tend to be less stable than the latest RELEASE of FreeBSD. Dinesh Nair back-ported these scripts to the latest release (2.2.5), and continues development of PicoBSD using sources from that branch.

In April 2, 2005 Volker Ruppert created an ‘img’ image of PicoBSD. The directory contains a bootable floppy image of PicoBSD, which is a teeny version of FreeBSD. I have been able to get it to boot, as long as I tell it not to probe for a mouse.

PicoBSD is now included in the FreeBSD source files where it is used by embedded system developers to create their own system images. It can be used with recent versions of FreeBSD and it is located in /usr/src/release/picobsd/.

In FreeBSD 5, it has been superseded by the NanoBSD framework.

Media: Live CD
The last version | Released: 2.0.1 | February 2, 2007

FreeSBIE – a live CD based on the FreeBSD operating system which works directly from a CD, without touching your hard drive.

The first version of FreeSBIE was released in February 2004, which was based on FreeBSD 5.2.1. The second version sowed up in summer 2015, and the last one 2.0.1 in February 2007, based on FreeBSD 6.2.

The live CD features various applications and tools, such as: X11, Fluxbox, Xfce, Firefox, MPlayer, XMMS, OpenOffice.org, GIMP. The live system does not start the X Server itself, just launches a wallpaper (?) with the project logo. Pressing ‘Esc’ lets you quit and log it to the shell, then type ‘startx’ to launch the default Xfce desktop.

The developer offers a toolkit which can be used for creation of a CD and to make embedded images a-la miniBSD or nanoBSD.

DesktopBSD – a desktop-oriented operating system based on FreeBSD.
The project started in 2005, and the first release candidate version was released 25 July 2005.
It provides a desktop operating system that is easy to use to the end users, but offers it with the power of BSD.

DesktopBSD is not a fork of FreeBSD, it uses the stable tree of FreeBSD and lets run it in Live mode, and install the system on a hard drive as well. DesktopBSD has pre-installed K Desktop Environment 3.5, which is the default graphical user interface and has its own utilities and configuration files for system management as well.

The last version of DesktopBSD was released in September 2009 and the development has been stopped.
The project has been restarted under new leadership in May 2010, but it stopped soon too.
In March 2013 the forums member announced that the project is restarted again, but there no fresh news any more.

In November 2015, the community members published a testing virtual image of DesktopBSD 2.0 M1.
The password to log in to the system is: dbsd
