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.

Now that it has hit 1.0 final I have been wondering. I use OpenSuSE 10, it is fine unless I want to install something not through YaST. So like how is it in campared to OpenSuSE 10?

Does it allow root with the pasword chose by you? Kubutu (sp?) didn't.

Is it user-friendly without being dumbed down?

How good is the hardware detection, like if it works on OpenSuSE 10 it will work on PC-BSD right?

Oh & does it have a complete control panel?
