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."

"In reality, you can safely depend on the presence of certain libraries on ALL PC-BSD installs."

The last time I checked they had only Glib library installed and the version that was installed on the base system was conflicting with the version the system wanted to install when I did "pkr_add -r gedit". Then, only glib was installed. Are they now distributing the GTK and Gnome libraries as well?
