NeWBIE LiveCD is a NetBSD based distro geared towards the desktop user.




NeWBIE LiveCD is a NetBSD based distro geared towards the desktop user.

It includes software for Web browsing, chatting, multimedia, and document editing.

This acronym NeWBIE is pronounced just like the word "newbie" and stands for (Ne)tBSD (W)are (B)urned (I)n (E)conomy.

Newbie is a NetBSD (v. 3.0) live CD similar in spirit to the well-known FreeSBIE live CD. Newbie currently caters to the desktop-user (i.e. with applications for web browsing, chat, multimedia, document editing, etc) but will also serve as a core for creating a NetBSD version of Arudius (see below) - a network security auditing tool.

Why based on NetBSD? Because contrary to the popular opinion, NetBSD is not some obscure *BSD flavor that is only good for powering your toaster, but is a powerful, flexible and highly portable operating system.

In many aspects it is better than its more famous cousins. Did you know that NetBSD recently broke the speed record for network data transfer? And what about speed and scalability?

What's New in This Release:

This release cleans up the boot process and adds a GUI tool for easy setup of the modem/DSL connection.
More productivity tools are included (e.g. a file manager, spreadsheet, Samba, wireless AP detection, sniffer, network analysis, etc.).
