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?"

I was going to give PC-BSD a try, but then looking at the PBI's on the website they seem a few versions behind which put me off. For example, konversation is at version 0.19, but on my linux box i am using version 1.01. I am not saying that the linux distribution i use is better than PC-BSD, just saying that on initial impressions with PC-BSD it seems the PBI's are a few versions behind which puts me off
