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."

RE[2]: still no easy drivers

Member since:

I saw it on their forums dude..

I have been using pc-bsd for a LONG time and am no newbie

so how do I install Java System wide(not just on one version of firefo?)? I mean complete applet and stand-alone. BSD comes with many versions
of java..but not as pbis and most are useless for
the average user..

Here's a thread that gives u a taste
"flash, what are your ways around it?"

another "sign the flash on bsd petition"


"add flash to opera ports"

Maybe u see a pattern now?
In some cases using ports linux compatibity
applications is suggested..but is this easy?
I have tried and it is often buggy.

Oh you do know there is firefox 2 and Opera don't you?

I'm sorry if the truth hurts..but I call 'em
as I see 'em
