I don't think there is any such thing as "FreeBSD's very own GUI".

FreeBSD's GUI is X Window System, but this is Unix's main GUI, which is also
used by other (quasi-)Unixes including Linux.

You can look through the FreeBSD Handbook online, even download it.

You can find useful links from .

Does anybody know about live USBs/CDs/DVDs for FreeBSD?
