Without much ado, the FreeSBIE team has released a beta of their upcoming version 2. “You can download the beta from the torrent. You can log in as user ‘freesbie’ (no password) and try ‘startxfce4’ or ‘startfluxbox’. You won’t find the preconfigured menus and settings as Dave’s still working on them, but you can run `openoffice.org’ from a terminal. All you readers are strongly welcome if you can give it a test and report feedback, we are working hard for the new release.” Note: Let’s try not to get knickers in a twist over the icon this time, shall we?
