FreeBSD 10.1-RELEASE LXDE VirtualBox Image

FreeBSD 10.1-RELEASE will be soon officially announced. Here is your chance to give it a quick and effortless try. Download a VirtualBox image file:

FreeBSD 10.1-RELEASE LXDE VirtualBox Image

Unzip it, and use the "Import Appliance" option of VirtualBox to add the contained .ova file. This image contains a standard FreeBSD 10.1-RELEASE install with an LXDE desktop, Chromium, mplayer, vlc and the slim login manager. Everything has been installed using pkg and the standard FreeBSD pkgng repository. You may continue adding more packages as you wish.

There are two accounts, root and user, both with a password of 1234 (which, you are of course, advised to change). And you should only use the user account to login to the GUI. User may also use sudo (already installed and configured).
