DSB

About

DSB is a meta project, and stands for Desktop Suite (for) (Free)BSD. It is, as the name suggests, a collection of programs particularly written for FreeBSD®. DSB is addressed to FreeBSD® users who prefer to assemble their own (rather minimalist) working environment with tools they really need.
