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."

the previous poster is also right about the design/technical deficiencies of the pbi system

This discussion goes nowhere... You say it's bad but you fail to explain why. Isn't PC-BSD's system like Windows' or OS X'software installers? Are these wrong? Oh please...

Ok, they're wrong because the user doesn't have to type sudo apt-get install.
