helloSystem, the Mac-like FreeBSD OS, Takes Another Step Towards Full Release

 

Quote

Most of you have probably never heard of helloSystem before. The project was started by the creator of AppImage, Simon Peter, early last year. Simon’s goal is to create a “friendly Libre Desktop operating system with focus on simplicity, minimalist elegance, and usability”.

 

user guide etc etc

 

Interestingly Ventoy is mentioned in the guide as a way to try out helloSystem,

Ventoy is a tool that lets you boot the operating systems of multiple ISO files that are residing on the same disk, without the need to write the ISO to a physical device. Starting with version 1.0.62, Ventoy can boot helloSystem 0.7.0 and later.

 

This looks like a very interesting distro well worth a play with. 😎

Looks interesting. Doubt it will catch on any more than other BSDs but I may give it a spin in Ventoy one day.

I gave it a whirl in Ventoy.

 

Took a while to load. Once up and running it semed pretty snappy to say it was running from a old usb 8GB hdd. Only had a quick play as there was no automatic internet connection. The programs I tried opened up quickly enough.

Like I said interesting for the concept. 😎
