Supporting PC-BSD

PC-BSD is a community project and hence it can't exist without involvement from its users and supporters.

Get involved

In order to make PC-BSD better with each release we appreciate your feedback and help; you can post ideas, report bugs/problems on the mailinglist, TRAC or the forums, If you like 'playing around' with operating systems, you can test drive developement snapshots, alpha/beta/rc releases, and if you like languages, why not translate PC-BSD in your language if it's not available yet? If you like programming, and especially coding on FreeBSD, we'd love to see you join the PC-BSD Team.

Intermediate and advanced users can help us assisting other users by answering their questions and trying to solve their problems; on the PC-BSD forums and IRC.

Financially

To help the PC-BSD project financially, why not consider making a donation if you're happy with our product? Alternatively you can buy your PC-BSD installation CD/DVD and cool stuff from FreeBSD Mall, PC-BSD's sister company. Companies may consider buying professional support from iXsystems.

Online

We are always interested in more download mirrors. If you have spare web space and bandwidth on your server, PC-BSD will be greatly helped if you would be willing to donate this to us. More mirrors means higher download speeds and more (local) servers for users to download from. PC-BSD is also distributed as torrent and you can help us with seeding, especially the first two weeks after a new release.

Webmasters and bloggers can put a Spread PC-BSD button on their site and start collecting... Collecting what?

Offline

So you love PC-BSD? Why not tell the world about it? Your family, your friends, fellow students and colleagues? You won't be the only one that likes a free, virus-free, spyware-free and adware-free operating system. You can burn a couple of CDs and pass them out.
