    Phoronix: GhostBSD 3.0 Lets You Relive GNOME 2 On BSD

    GhostBSD 3.0 is a BSD operating system derived from FreeBSD. What sets this apart from FreeBSD and the KDE-based PC-BSD is that it's shipping with the GNOME 2.x desktop environment. Openbox and LXDE are also available for this BSD OS...

      I don't get it. If you prefer using Gnome 2 then ship your distro with MATE or Cinamon - don't use dated technology!

        Cinnamon isn't GNOME2, and MATE is about as dated as GNOME2.

          lol, Linux Guys fight about whether it is wise when a multi-million-users/dollars distro develops an own display server, and meanwhile in the bsd camp, some people fork their entire OS for the sake of having an outdated user interface by default, and nobody seems to actually care about that and the Linux guys are instead reunited in their hate (?) for bsd.

              At least with FreeBSD I can still boot to it using their latest kernel. I have not been able to in Linux since the 3.5 series. Still can't now with 3.8.2

              It was forked for user-friendliness. PC-BSD is bloated and new users don't want a text-based distro *not to mention, don't know how to install a new interface*

              Also, Gnome3 hasn't been put in yet due to it requiring some GNU/Linux only stuff. While it is still possible, it is not recommended for being... buggy at best.

              Still, at least all the other ones like KDE, LXDE, XFCE, Xmonad, etc. are up to date ;P

                Well, if you are using hardware that doesn't have 3D acceleration support, using LLVMpipe instead is a terribly slow experience.
                And if you want to use Gnome Shell, Cinnamon or any desktop environment from the same family, if you don't have 3D acceleration you will be using LLVMpipe.
                So I can see why they did it from that point of view.
