BSDanywhere is an OpenBSD Live CD - enlightenment at your fingertips.
BSDanywhere can be used as a productive Unix system for the desktop, educational CD, rescue system or hardware testing platform. It is not necessary to install anything on a hard disk, so your already installed data will be left alone.
BSDanywhere is currently in a stage of 'alpha'. This means, there are several known bugs, inconveniences and likely problems we don't even know of. Be aware.
Once we've reached some level of maturity we will have two official releases per year, every May and November. Naturally, the release naming scheme as well as the release cycle is coupled to the OpenBSD project.

What's New in This Release:
- Upgrade base system to OpenBSD 4.6 and packages accordingly. Please see the OpenBSD site for a list of changes since 4.5. OpenBSD 4.6 provides significant improvements, including new features, in nearly all areas of the system.
- Replace Enlightenment desktop (E17) with ICEwm, for which we use a slightly adjusted 'icedesert' theme including BSDanywhere wallpapers. It starts quicker, is easy to customize and very stable.
- Space we gained by swapping the window manager has been spent on adding the XMMS music player, the IRSSI chat client, the XFE file manager, the Mutt email client and the OpenNX client.
- ddb, the kernel debugger, may now be invoked from the console using CTRL-ALT-ESC.
