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.

PC-BSD includes the ports & standard supfiles in the root home folder. Doing the standard cvsup will populate /usr/ports and /usr/src .. from there, you can install ports/compile the system as normal on any other FreeBSD 6 system. Bottom line: if you need a FreeBSD desktop, PC-BSD is a great way to get there fast while still letting you harness the full power of FreeBSD 6.
