FreeSBIE is a LiveCD based on the FreeBSD Operating system, or even easier, a FreeBSD-based operating system that works directly from a CD, without touching your hard drive.

The only thing you have to do is to insert a FreeSBIE cd in your cdrom drive.

FreeSBIE 1.1 is based on FreeBSD 5.3 and comes up with a collection of FREE software you could try and love (see later for descriptions).

With FreeSBIE you will be able to surf the Internet, to have a nice multimedia experience, to meet your friends with cool chat programs and to evaluate a real FreeBSD system without the pain to install it.

What's New in 1.1 Stable Release:
A renewed series of scripts to support power users in the use of FreeSBIE 1.1.
An installer to let users install FreeSBIE 1.1 on their hard drives, thus having a powerful operating system such as FreeBSD, but with all the personalizations FreeSBIE 1.1 carries.
The presence of the best open source software, chosen and personalized, such as X.Org 6.7, XFCE 4.2RC1, Firefox 1.0 and Thunderbird 0.9.2.
