FreeSBIE - Live Bootable FreeBSD

FreeSBIE is a live CD based on the FreeBSD operating system. You simply insert the FreeSBIE CD into your computer and within a minute or so you have a running version of FreeBSD without having installed anything or made any changes to your computer. FreeSBIE 1.x is based on the 5.3-STABLE branch of FreeBSD and FreeSBIE 2.x on the 6.2-RELEASE of FreeBSD. It is possible to install FreeSBIE 1.x onto your computer using the BSDInstaller. The 2.x release does not support this at the current time.

As with all live CDs, FreeSBIE allows you to test if your computer is capable of running FreeBSD on your hardware without actually installing anything.

FreeSBIE is commonly mispelt as freebsie but a Google search does not yet correct the spelling. If you search for freesbie rather than freebsie your search will yield far more results. This is true for all the major search engines.
