The DesktopBSD project is in the process of being revived. EchoD has brought the website and the forums back to live.
DesktopBSD 1.7 was released back in 2009 and Peter Hofer announced that would be the last release baked up by himself. Some German deve;opers took over the project, but nothing came to fruition and the website went offline.
Let’s see what the new developers have in stock and when DesktopBSD 2.0 will be out.
