creating a livecd in my opinion has become a requirement for any system worth its salt. freebsd foundation should absorb and support freesbie.

Sorry, FreeSBIE is already integral part of FreeBSD and supported by the FreeBSD foundation, more is to come soon.

And yes, a LiveCD is essential for every free OS these days. You can use the FreeSBIE toolkit to create your own LiveCD btw, see

Nearly all projects based on FreeBSD with a LiveCD (RoFreeSBIE, DesktopBSD etc.) use this toolkit (except Frenzy for some reasons).

Congrats to the FreeSBIE team and thnaks for all their hard work, please keep on going strong! ;)

Best regards, Daniel
