What is WiBSD?
WiBSD offers whatever FreeBSD offers and adds some unique features. WiBSD boots from Compact Flash, harddrive or CD and runs from memory. Because of that it supports remote upgrades very easily and reliably which makes WiBSD distribution an excellent system for not easily physically accessible remote network boxes. System is configured from one place only (/etc/rc.conf) and all other configuration files are dynamically created during the booting. It contains optional and easily configurable IPFW firewall system. Your current configuration is automatically checked before rebooting which prevents you from rebooting a system that is believed not to be in a consistent state.
See a complete list of main WiBSD features.
Easy to install
WiBSD can be installed from one image file which is written (by dd) to CF card or other media.
WiBSD is free
WiBSD is free because FreeBSD is free too.
