BSD and Darwin derivatives The DesktopBSD team has released their most important release to date-- DesktopBSD 1.0 is now available via .torrent or as a 'normal' download. The release includes KDE 3.5.1, FreeBSD 5.5-PRERELEASE, a user-friendlier package manager, and many more smaller improvements, which are detailed in the changelog and the release notes.

Sorry, but you can use every single package or port that's available in FreeBSD, you may want to look at www.freshports.org for more information. FreeBSD and DesktopBSD as well have the second largest collection of packages/ports only behind Debian (and that is questionable too for some reasons)...

Or do you think more packages should be included in the DVD images?

Sorry but I don't get your point at all.

LOL, I don't understand his point either. What package does he want that you can't install on DesktopBSD?

" Or do you think more packages should be included in the DVD images? "

Well, IMHO is a bit ridiculous to release a DVD ISO ith a bit more than 1 Gb.. They should have released 2 CD ISOs.

Is not worrthy to spend a DVD , above all a good one, for anything less than 3 Gb. An having such a big number of programs and ports comming from FreBSD , I do not see why they did not released a bigger DVD image!!!
