Now that I feel reasonably confortable with FreeBSD, my interest in FreeBSD's desktop variants has recently revived. I love a lot of things that PC-BSD/TrueOS does (boot environments, SysAdm, ...) but I also like to keep older machines alive. So there are three reasons why I kind of favor GhostBSD over the other product; it:
- still supports i386 and UFS (for machines with little RAM)
- uses GTK (yay!) instead of the ugly bloat that is Qt
- is a small independent project (and I have a soft spot for "underdogs")
I'll try to support the project a bit and see if I fit into the community. My Python knowledge is rather limited and so development is probably not the right field for me. So far I've begun re-writing some wiki pages hoping to improve the documentation. I've already run into a few things where I'm not quite sure that they are correct; I'll try to figure it out myself first - but whom could I ask for a definitive answer if eventually I'm not sure? Should I ask here on the forums? I've also tried to translate the "Main Page" into German but for some reason this seems not to work. Will have to look into that further.
So: Thanks for this very nice desktop variant of FreeBSD and for all the hard work that was put into 10.3! I really appreciate it.
