TrueOS is a Windows or Linux alternative based on the FreeBSD operating system. In this video I install TrueOS in VirtualBox, and also try out a range of applications.The TrueOS website here: http://trueos.org/You may also be interested in my related videos:Setting Up a Virtual Machine (VirtualBox): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jyi-NuqiLr0React OS: Free Windows Alternative: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ne88Is2cymQKdenlive Free Video Editor: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=huZQwS1-eh4You may also enjoy my recent book “Digital Genesis: The Future of Computing, Robots and AI”: http://amzn.to/2C2WrA6More videos on computing and related topics can be found at: http://www.youtube.com/explainingcomputersAnd I have another YouTube channel called ExplainingTheFuture at: http://www.youtube.com/explainingthefuture
Sir video on tine core Linux
Hello. Seems like TrueOS does not come with a GUI any more. It could be prudent to disclose that plus add a pinned comment ;)----------------------------------------The TrueOS Project has some big plans in the works, and we want to take a minute and share them with you. Many have come to know TrueOS as the “graphical FreeBSD” that makes things easy for newcomers to the BSDs. Today we’re announcing that TrueOS is shifting our focus a bit to become a cutting-edge operating system that keeps all of the stability that you know and love from ZFS (OpenZFS) and FreeBSD, and adds additional features to create a fresh, innovative operating system. Our goal is to create a core-centric operating system that is modular, functional, and perfect for do-it-yourselfers and advanced users alike.TrueOS will become a downstream fork that will build on FreeBSD by integrating new software technologies like OpenRC and LibreSSL. Work has already begun which allows TrueOS to be used as a base platform for other projects, including JSON-based manifests, integrated Poudriere / pkg tools and much more. We’re planning on a six month release cycle to keep development moving and fresh, allowing us to bring you hot new features to ZFS, bhyve and related tools in a timely manner. This makes TrueOS the perfect fit to serve as the basis for building other distributions.Some of you are probably asking yourselves “But what if I want to have a graphical desktop?” Don’t worry! We’re making sure that everyone who knows and loves the legacy desktop version of TrueOS will be able to continue using a FreeBSD-based, graphical operating system in the future. For instance, if you want to add KDE, just use sudo pkg install kde and voila! You have your new shiny desktop. Easy right? This allows us to get back to our roots of being a desktop agnostic operating system. If you want to add a new desktop environment, you get to pick the one that best suits your use.We know that some of you will still be looking for an out-of-the-box solution similar to legacy PC-BSD and TrueOS. We’re happy to announce that Project Trident will take over graphical FreeBSD development going forward. Not much is going to change in that regard other than a new name! You’ll still have Lumina Desktop as a lightweight and feature-rich desktop environment and tons of utilities from the legacy TrueOS toolchain like sysadm and AppCafe. There will be migration paths available for those that would like to move to other FreeBSD-based distributions like Project Trident or GhostBSD.We look forward to this new chapter for TrueOS and hope you will give the new edition a spin! Tell us what you think about the new changes by leaving us a comment. Don’t forget you can ask us questions on our Twitter and be a part of our community by joining the new TrueOS Forums when they go live in about a week. Thanks for being a loyal fan of TrueOS.
Hello I have tried installing Trueos and done it as per your example in the video tutorial yet I do not get the same version of Trueos. Please advise?
That OS is looking nice and since there are so many programs to run on it one could do almost anything using it.
I see that you never mention printers ,which I consider one of the biggest problems in linux;esp. Brother all-in-ones
Она настолько хороша, что достойна запускатолько под виртуалкой )
Like the video... But that is one ugly OS
Love the videos and the details. Virtual box you can eject the Virtual image while it is running so you can either use ISO files or even the physical drive for loading CD/DVD
i think u need to set up USB in the virtual machine's settings
I don't understand but I tried downloading TrueOS but there is no desktop option. What happened?
Cover KolibriOS and/ or MenuetOS
btw why can't you add the usb stick to virtualbox?! makes no senseI see no problem to use it in virtualbox and use personacrypt
I like TrueOS, it's a great alternative - but not compatible with any of my PCs..Maybe because all my PCs consist of AMD CPU's and GPU's..Whatever.. I think the best solution is to find ONE well working Linux distro and then use it as a virtualbox host to run WIndows 10, macOS, other Linux distros, BSD-based distros,...
Are there any websites where I can download software written for TrueOS?
Before you downloaded the True OS were you running windows or Linux?
Are there any Lunix disteros that are pro LBGTQI+ themed?
freeBSD to .. This? Very Nice. UNISC is not new, it still is in use today.One advantage, the USB Security Login - not new yet, betterment ( I Know It's Not a word, but then - neither is "Absorbtion". ever get to the root of that word?, just what IS a "Sorb" ???)
At least KDE among other desktop environments are an option. PC-BSD originally used to use KDE, before they switched to Lumina
A True Video 😀
