The developers of GhostBSD have made available version 18.12. GhostBSD, originally based on FreeBSD, is now using TrueOS as the base operating system. You may download the ISO/image file here.

Not sure why people continue to use MATE instead of GNOME Flashback. Flashback is not perfect but a lot less buggy than GNOME2 stuff.

What has changed since 18.10

  • removed default call of kernel modules for AMD and Intel
  • replaced octopkg by software-station
  • added back gop hacks to the live system
  • added ghostbsd-drivers and ghostbsd-utils
  • we updated the packages to the latest build
