With FreeBSD 9.2
being anticipated for release soon
, the GhostBSD distro is out with their 3.5 release candidate that's based upon the upstream FreeBSD.
GhostBSD 3.5 is based on FreeBSD 9.2 and will support the LXDE, MATE, Openbox, and Xfce desktops as an alternative to the KDE-focused FreeBSD-based PC-BSD. Like PC-BSD, GhostBSD focuses upon a nice BSD-based desktop experience
