PC-BSD For those who want an easy-to-configure and easy-to-install FreeBSD desktop system, Dru Lavigne demonstrates the features of PC-BSD and DesktopBSD. This first article is about PC-BSD. "If you haven't had a chance to try out PC-BSD, take some time to install and poke about this user-friendly operating system. If you're looking for a free and stable operating system for friends or family, burn them an ISO and have them give it a test drive."

Yeah, I have tried it, and think it is a very good Distro.

Both PC-BSD and DesktopBSD are excellent, and a very good idea that will help to expand the BSD Operating systems. The competition between both is a good thing aswell, although I hope they are collaborating with each other too...

I will install PC-BSD also as a WMware Virtual machine in another PCs.

For those who want to try it in a virtual Machine before installing it in a Hard Disk, you can download a very recent "PC-BSD 1.0 VMware image"!

This is the link:

Enjoy it, because the era of the "BSD Desktop Ready" OS is also very near! BSD is catching up the Linux easy Distros; and soon both will be easier to install and use for an average PC user than Windows...

PC-BSD is the prove of it!
