There is a project called VirtualBSD that developed a
FreeBSD system image that can be used with VirtualBox.
It is a preinstalled and preconfigured OS + applications
comparable to PC-BSD, but it uses Xfce instead of KDE,
and (in my opinion) it looks much better. :-)

In order to download the 1.3 GB image, you can easily
install e. g. the "ctorrent" program from ports, download
the torrent file from the web page mentioned above, and
then let ctorrent get the file.
