PC-BSD "With all of the BSD variants available for download, it's easy to incorrectly assume all of them are pure, incompatible forks from each other. Actually, there are more shades of BSD out in the world than just separate forks. One in particular made the news a couple of weeks ago when it was commercially acquired. The BSD in question is PC-BSD. The company that bought it is iXsystems, a systems deployment and integrator firm out of San Jose that has pretty strong experience implementing *BSD, Unix and Linux systems for its customer base. So, why did the company up and buy PC-BSD?"

VERY good. when i first caught wind of PC-BSD i thought 'hey, thats cool' it is, very easy to use, simple installer and pre-set up gui, while not for the hard core these are very nice features for a lot of peeple. also its 'package management' reminds me of somewhat of OS X (HEY, ALOS BSD BASED, W00T!)

while i myself am a linux user, i do try to keep a foot in the door of all the OS's i can find. any support of a company for any FOSS software be it BSD root open solaris root or linux root can only help the FOSS groups as a whole.

now, if i could just get the mamnagemnt here to relize win2ksp4 is NOT the last OS they will ever need.
