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 http://www.freshports.org/sysutils/freesbie/

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
