While PC-BSD is a terrific desktop incarnation of FreeBSD, it's mostly focused around the KDE desktop. In the event you happen to be looking for a BSD platform to run underneath the Xfce 4.10 desktop, the MATE 1.6 fork of the GNOME2 packages, or the LXDE desktop environment, GhostBSD is another alternative that's powered by FreeBSD.

GhostBSD 3.5 is the new release today that does away with GNOME 2.32 in favor of MATE and also adds in Xfce 4.10 as a desktop option. GhostBSD 3.5 also pulls in various kernel changes and package upgrades from FreeBSD 9.2. GhostBSD 3.5 also now installs Shotwell and the GIMP image editor by default and it's replaced Apache OpenOffice with LibreOffice. Additionallym the installer has been updated too.

GhostBSD 3.5 is codenamed "Levi" and more release details can be found via GhostBSD.org.
