FreeSBIE Project Releases FreeSBIE-1.0

Last month I wrote about the FreeSBIE live CD-ROM FreeBSD distribution. The team just released FreeSBIE-1.0 for download. The announcement describes the project and the package list details all the goodies in the .iso image. This version is based on FreeBSD 5.2.1 RELEASE.

Update: This Slashdot post on FreeSBIE brought several other cool projects to my attention, including LiveBSD and BSDeviant, along with general sites like LiveCDNews. I also just found the sysutils/freesbie port, which will not be as current as the CVS version.

The latest version of FreeSBIE has this torrent and the desktop version of LiveBSD has this torrent. The FreeSBIE mailing list is archived at gmane.org for easy perusal.
