For those looking to experiment with a BSD-based desktop open-source platform, GhostBSD has been competing well as one of the few in this field. GhostBSD 20.02 is out and continues being based on TrueOS/FreeBSD stable packages while shipping the GTK-based MATE desktop environment as its out-of-the-box desktop solution.

With GhostBSD 20.02 there is now a custom ZFS partition editor for better managing ZFS deployments along with the possibility of setting up ZFS alongside Windows/Linux/macOS partitions.

The GhostBSD Update Station for managing system software updates has also seen a number of improvements. Another notable addition on the mobile/laptop side is GhostBSD 20.02 shipping with powerd by default to improve laptop battery life. GhostBSD developers also decided to add Telegram to their list of default desktop applications.
