"BSDi announced the new BSD Desktop Edition to fill the growing demand for packaged BSD operating systems. The BSD Desktop Edition will be available at retail outlets including BestBuy, CompUSA, Fry's, MicroCenter, Staples, and RCS as well as BSDi's www.freeebsdmall.com."

"The BSD Desktop Edition includes the latest releases of the popular FreeBSD open source operating system; Applixware Office Suite from VistaSource, a complete desktop productivity package including word processor, html authoring, spreadsheet, presentation manager, e-mail, and graphics; and Partition Magic from PowerQuest for running multiple operating systems on the same personal computer...."

"FreeBSD 4.1 offers the latest operating system enhancements and contains a number of significant advancements. Key enhancements to FreeBSD 4.1 include industry standard IPv6 and IPSec (for both IPv4 and IPv6) implementations from the KAME Project. Among many enhancements, FreeBSD 4.1 supports raccoon, the KAME IKE daemon, which has been shown to interoperate well with other vendor IKE systems, meaning that FreeBSD 4.1 can be used in a heterogeneous IPSEC environment. Additionally, FreeBSD 4.1 can now be installed on an IPv6-only network, such that IPv4 is not required."
