PC-BSD "iXsystems, an enterprise-class hardware solution provider, announced today its acquisition of PC-BSD, a rock solid UNIX operating system based on FreeBSD. PC-BSD is a fully functional desktop operating system running FreeBSD version 6, with a KDE desktop interface and graphical system installer. Its PBI system, developed exclusively for PC-BSD, lets users download and install their applications in a self-extracting and installing format. iXsystems' acquisition of PC-BSD will provide funding to the PC-BSD project to increase distribution of PC-BSD and develop future versions of PC-BSD. Development is currently underway for a version of PC-BSD that will allow for easy installation and operation on servers, workstations, and laptops."

To whomever mod'd my original post in this thread down... please explain? What was spam or where was offensive language used?

The level of discourse on this site has been declining of late and there seems to be more trolls, astroturfers and general pointless argument than actual real discussion based around fact, not to mention a sad increase of abuse of the mod system.

If you have a negative opinion about a post, state it... point out how I (or any other poster) is wrong in a logical, well supported way, don't chicken out and hit the '-' button.
