PC-BSD After months and months of work, the PC-BSD team released v1.0 final. "PC-BSD software is pleased to announce the immediate availability of PC-BSD 1.0 for x86 based processors. This first 'non-beta' release of PC-BSD ushers in a new era of stability and simplicity for desktop operating systems based on UNIX. Powered by the latest FreeBSD 6.0 and integrated with KDE 3.5.2, PC-BSD provides a solid server base, while being user-friendly enough to run as a primary desktop system." Changelog, release notes, and download, of course.

Few odd ends

Truly impressive, easy to install. Few weird things, though.
Keyboard during install: no us layout available, Syria is on top of the (cut off alphabetic) list. I chose english uk at long last, reset it in kde later.
No mic boost option available in kmix. I need that for skype, ekiga ea. I read somewhere you had to recompile the kernel after tweaking ac97.c. ?????
LibFlash pbi nowhere to be found (found it on 1.0rc last week). Seems to be missing on purpose (?).
Lastly, after installing the ports system, linux binary compatibility and the bsd java sdk/jre, compiling eclipse SDK landed me right in some gtk gnome dependency hell. Unrecoverable.
Other than that, great 1.0!
