So...other than that PC-BSD has this new package system for "some" software....and has nice graphics and out of the box "ease of use"...it's REALLY Free bsd underneath and can be run like it...including the package/ports system?

Yes, it IS FreeBSD underneath and you can install from ports or with pkg_add. And you can update kernel and userland too. Only thing you have to do is restore permissions for mount* and umount commands for automatic drive mounting feature and compile atapicam device to your new shiny kernel if you don't use default config file located in /PCBSD/config/ directory.
