So my initial/only install of TrueOS was in Nov 2016, been simply doing upgrades along the stable path as I went along.
Finally scrounged up some extra hardware (NUC with i3 CPU, Intel graphics, 16GB memory, 256GB mSata, UEFI boot) and grabbed the latest unstable (05Aug2017 I believe) and went at it.
I must say “I’m impressed” with the latest version of the installer, everything went smoothly, no issues at all, much better than it was almost a year ago.
This is going to be a “play box” following unstable, but if anyone is looking for a small footprint reasonably performing desktop, don’t overlook the Intel NUCs.
