GhostBSD is a FreeBSD-based operating system with the GNOME and LXDE desktop environment.
GhostBSD is an advanced operating system for x86 compatible (including Pentium and Athlon), amd64 compatible (including Opteron, Athlon 64, and EM64T) architectures. It is derived from FreeBSD which is derived from BSD, the version of UNIX developed at the University of California, Berkeley.

With cutting edge features, GhostBSD is a Gnome desktop distribution in the form of a live CD and DVD – it can also be installed on your HDD.
