BSD and Darwin derivatives DesktopBSD is a version of FreeBSD customized for the desktop. Building upon FreeBSD 5.5-PRE, ver1.0 comes packed with desktop-oriented features such as KDE 3.5.1 and the DesktopBSD Tools, which include a graphical interface to the FreeBSD ports system.

I'm looking forward to see if DesktopBSD is up to challange PC-BSD in terms of speed and usability.

A graphical tool for the ports system is also a nice complement. More easy to use tools for the people.

It's great to have two desktop oriented FreeBSD "versions" out of the box, to choose from.

Best of luck to both of them.
