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."

I know Flash is not available for BSD, but they do offer a Flash PBI. It's also normal to sign a petition to have Flash ported to BSD. Nothing wrong about that.

Also, I see 2 versions of Java available. Are there others that are not listed?

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


Yes, I know there is firefox 2 and Opera, but I don't understand why you say this.
