How to Install FreeBSD (with Gui!)

Hello, Lillian here! Wanna learn how to install FreeBSD, with a nice GUI, Firefox, a nice terminal experience, and other goodies? I had some spare time so I made an instructional video for exactly that!

This goes over:

  1. Installing FreeBSD
  2. Setting up your GUI (windowmaker, xorg, rox-filer)
  3. Updates
  4. Terminal experience; zsh + oh-my-zsh
  5. Other goodies!

This setup is pretty much what we use for the official Hypatia Software Organization Developer Image.

Sorry for the choppy and unprofessional video; I didn’t have much time to put this together, so please forgive me! ?
