Strengths, Weaknesses, Differences?

Member since:

I've been watching some of the Desktop/PC/BSD stuff rather closely, and I was wondering if someone could tell me (or point me in the right direction) what their thoughts were.

I'm interested in trying a BSD. I really just run a desktop machine - no server stuff. I have a lot of Linux experience (Gentoo/Slack/*Buntu), and am very interested in playing a bit with new OS's.

What are some of the differences between desktop and pc bsd? Pros and cons?

I'm leaning towards trying PCBSD to try the pbi installs...
