Ken Moore & Joe Maloney: "The Strong, the Brave, the TrueOS!"

Tuesday, August 30, 2016 - 6:00pm

"The Strong, the Brave, the TrueOS!"

TrueOS is the successor of the PC-BSD project, focused on providing an easy-to-use FreeBSD system for desktops or servers that anyone can run. There are a number of key differences about TrueOS from FreeBSD and/or PC-BSD, and these include (but are not limited to): pure rolling release based on FreeBSD-CURRENT (12 right now), uses all the latest xorg/DRM work which provides support for bleeding edge hardware, fully packaged/segmented base OS, and a small Qt5-only ISO/IMG based around the Lumina desktop and the SysAdm system management framework. This session will have a short presentation about TrueOS, explaining all the new aspects of it and how it is different from other open-source operating systems, and then will be followed up by a Q&A session with a couple of the TrueOS developers (Ken Moore and Joe Maloney).


The location will once again be at the Blount County Library. We will be in the Dorothy Herron room - Room A. There should also be a sign directing people to the room in the hallway. If you have any questions about the meeting, you can contact us by signing up for our mailing list or visiting us on #knoxbug.
