I love PcBSD and think it is really shaping up to be nice os. One of my main problems with it is it's lack of support to read and write to linux filesystems (reiserfs, XFS, JFS) And support for ext2 and ext3 is quite limited. One would think with these filesystems being opensource that there would be kernel or even user level drivers that would read and write to these volumes.

I must say, PcBSD is the most polished desktop nix I have used aside from OSX and I really hope they keep up the good work.

I think with a little more manpower on the development team PcBSD could really be a large force in the desktop nix market and down the road possibly even a force in the proprietary desktop market.
