It is BSD[edit]

GhostBSD is derived from FreeBSD, and its roots go back to the University of California Berkeley Unix Research. Historically it was referred to as "BSD Unix" or "Berkeley Unix." However, today it is simply called BSD for Berkeley Software Distribution.

Eric: "GhostBSD is base TrueOS with FreeBSD 12 STABLE with our twist to it. We are still continuing to use TrueOS for OpenRC, and the new package's system for the base system that is built from ports. Since the release of 19.09, I have seen a lot of misunderstandings on what is GhostBSD and the future of GhostBSD. GhostBSD is becoming a slow-moving rolling release base on the latest TrueOS with FreeBSD 12 STABLE. When FreeBSD 13 STABLE gets released, GhostBSD will be upgraded to TrueOS with FreeBSD 13 STABLE."


  • Base system: In steps from FreeBSD/TrueOS STABLE X to FreeBSD/TrueOS STABLE X+1
  • Applications: As rolling releases, nearly weekly and sometimes shorter. Every time if there are new updates from upstream available and ported to FreeBSD and GhostBSD.
