GhostBSD 18.10 screenshots

GhostBSD 18.10 is the first GhostBSD release based on TrueOS. Earlier, this distribution was based on FreeBSD. The GhostBSD 18.10 brings an impressive MATE Desktop experience. Indeed, this is the best BSD that I have ever tried.

Resource usage on idle state. GhostBSD 18.10 consumes only 300 MB of memory on idle state. This is quite impressive comparing to other popular MATE distributions like Ubuntu MATE. Ubuntu MATE 18.10 takes over 800 MB of memory on idle state. But, In GhostBSD CPU usage is almost double of Ubuntu MATE.

Octopkg is an advanced package manager shipped with GhostBSD

Shotwell Image Manager

That's all for now!!

Usually, I posts a few more screenshots for each distributions. Unfortunately, I could not do that because of 
  1. Inability to create bootable USB drive. I followed the dd instructions provided in project's official website. But, it did n't work. I even tried writing the entire USB drive with zeros.
  2. In VirtualBox, the distribution was hanging while opening resource intensive applications like Firefox, MATE Control Centre & something else, or Octopkg with package updates.
Hopefully, I can address these issues in upcoming GhostBSD release and post a few more screenshots.
