MidnightBSD is a free BSD distribution forked from the FreeBSD operating system and built around the GNUstep graphical desktop environment. It aims to deliver an easy-to-use desktop-oriented OS for the masses. It is distributed under both BSD and GPL open-source licenses.

Supports 32-bit and 64-bit computers

This FreeBSD-derived operating system is available for download as installable-only ISO images that support both 32-bit (x86) and 64-bit (x86_64) computers. The user must download and write the ISO image that corresponds to his/her computer’s architecture on a CD disc or a USB thumb drive (recommended).

Boot-only ISO images are also available for download, designed for people who just want to boot the operating system and access a minimal shell prompt, as well as virtual appliances for the VMware and Parallels virtualization software.

Boot options

When booting the ISO image from the BIOS of a PC, using either a USB stick or a Compact Disc, you will be dropped to a boot menu from where you can boot the system and load the installer, drop to a shell prompt, reboot the machine, enable ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power Interface), as well as to boot in safe mode, single user mode or verbose mode
