MaheshaBSD's purpose is to bring (Free)BSD closer to those users who are scared of Unix and consider BSD harder than Linux. BSD systems are not so difficult to understand if you can recognize how control (of the world) works.
You may probably ask why MaheshaBSD comes on the scene. Does it want to compete with PC-BSD and DesktopBSD? No. PC-BSD and DesktopBSD require at least half an hour of time for basic installation and 2 or 3 more for installation of software that users may need. Some users may spend even days learning how to configure the system. MaheshaBSD is something that will be quick.
What Is Mahesha?
Mahesha is one of the 1008 names of Lord Shiva - Supreme God of the universe who stands above all gods. I use this name deliberately, as I think that BSD code stands supreme above all operating systems. Shiva's weapon is the same as the FreeBSD's one - the trident.
