One of the biggest surprises that Ubuntu has given about its new version is the possibility of a new official flavor based on BSD and not on Linux, this has given rise to UbuntuBSD, an interesting project. The Community that has been created around UbuntuBSD is such that in a few weeks the work of six months is being carried out, to the point that later this month UbuntuBSD is expected to be ready and functional stably.
And in the meantime, those of us who want to try UbuntuBSD no longer have to do it through forums or external repositories but we can download it from its official website . A website that has been launched in a modest way and that it has the basics not only to test the new flavor but also with the documentation to develop and use this union between BSD and Ubuntu.
UbuntuBSD already has an official website
Unfortunately we don't know anything about UbuntuBSD. Just like a few days ago Mark Shuttleworth claimed Ubuntu Budgie could be an official flavor if there is a strong community behind it, nothing has been said about UbuntuBSD. Something that puzzles a lot, but the users who try and follow the project are hopeful that the project will become an official flavor. Still, whether it is or not, Ubuntu with BSD is doing very well. Actually five betas have been developed that are giving good results And as we say, the heads of the project think that at the end of this month the first official version of UbuntuBSD will be released.
BSD has been an operating system with a very slow development but also very safe and functional. For many it has been an unknown and difficult operating system to handle but the latest advances have made its use amplify to the point of having a version with the philosophy of Ubuntu and all the software developed for this operating system. There is still a lot to do, but UbuntuBSD could be a big thing for the future of Ubuntu.
