    BSD live cd?


    Is there one? I would like to check out BSD as well as Linux primarily just out of curiosity and I hear it's related to Mac OSX and I have been using Mac for quite some time since my parents like it..

    I have never tried it but after looking at the page, I am now thinking about it.

    I've tried it. It makes a nice rescue CD.

    It's nice enough to use, fully featured. I'm pretty sure that the other BSDs like FreBSD and OpenBSD come as a live CD that installs...or at least that it boots to a usable shell as if running from a machine, from where you can run the install scripts. A while since I did it though.

    You can also install FreeSBIE to disk if you enjoy it. Look at the documentation on their website.
