FreeSBIE <http://www.freesbie.org/> is a LiveCD based on the FreeBSD operating system developed
mainly by a group of Italian people, and supported by the Italian
FreeBSD Users Group, known as GUFI <http://www.gufi.org/>. The first release (1.0) came to
life on April 15th, 2004, with 1.1 following on December 6th.
But FreeSBIE is not only an ISO file you can download from one of our
mirrors, it consists of a toolkit to provide any user with the ability
to create its very own, fully customized, LiveCD. As a small project,
made of about 5 people, FreeSBIE was awarded a prize for best user
interaction in an Italian Open source projects contest.
The idea behind the talk is to instruct the audience about the
engineering behind a FreeSBIE LiveCD and its toolkit, and the background
needed to create their own release.
