PC-BSD After the flood of Fedora Core 6 and Ubuntu 6.10 reviews, here is a review of PC-BSD 1.3 Beta. "PC-BSD has improved quite a bit and the use of its open-source PBI packaging system is a great idea. Although it obviously means there might be a minor delay in newly released products being ported over to the PBI package system, novice users will rejoice because the wait is well worth it. PC-BSD is a well oiled machine with its quick response times, even if you don't have that much memory in your system. Its implementation of a clean interface is welcomed by me and not having a 3D enabled desktop is not something I really would worry about unless you are an eye-candy lover."

To me it looked like a quick read up you read to catch up with the latest events. Kind of when you read the back of a popular book just in case the topic will arise at a party.

None the less, it's nice to see PC-BSD on the rise to something really good.
As a regular user I like the no-hassle installation of apps with PBI, and as a sys admin I like the ability to deploy a pretty competent server i no time.
