    Are there really any FreeBSD live versions yet -

    I understand that FreeSBIE is discontinued
    http://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=freesbie

    and GhostBSD-1.0-Beta.iso is well - about the very same exact try at a FreeBSD live version as was FreeSBIE.

    Next for me to try is the TrueBSD DVD - any experiences with it ?

    Thanks.

    Depends on what you mean by "LiveCD". The livefs CDs for each release, along with the DVD, allow you to get to a fully functioning CLI interface. The same as you would get after installing FreeBSD. It's accessed via the Fixit option in sysinstall.

    Or are you looking for a GUI LiveCD? These will never be produced by "The FreeBSD Project", as FreeBSD does not include a GUI as part of the base install.

    However, I believe the PC-BSD install CD is a LiveCD (never actually used it, though).

    There's also Frenzy, which is a sysadmin LiveCD without a GUI.

    Live CDs

    Currently there are the following Live CD's
    -TrueBSD
    -RoFreeSBIE & FreeSBIE
    -GhostBSD

    The upcoming PC-BSD 8.0 will be a live DVD
    There's a DesktopBSD LiveCD. Though the Project is discontinued now, the LiveCD is still usuable.

    Other FreeBSD projects can be found on my FreeBSD systems page:

    If you're aware of any projects that aren't listed (including any non-English projects), please let me know.

    It is suppose to be. I just downloaded it to try a quick install. Appears that I am having a hardware problem. So I'll try it again tonight.

    They have an 8.0 release in Beta, and a 7.1.1 release. I'm trying the 8.0. http://www.pcbsd.org will get you to their website.
