TrueOS is the server fork of PC-BSD, more or less, as far as I can tell.

PC-BSD is a distribution of FreeBSD aimed at desktop use. Personally I
am happy with Ubuntu but I have tried PC-BSD in the past and it's
certainly the easiest way to install a FreeBSD desktop setup.


There are other FreeBSD distros, such as MidnightBSD and GhostBSD.
I've tried them. MidnightBSD is very unfinished and seems to be a very
small team who have little time to give to it. GhostBSD is better but
lags behind the current FreeBSD release somewhat. I reckon PC-BSD is
therefore the best bet.
