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."

"""If you like, explain to me the necessarity of "Flash", allthough it might be seen as too far off-topic."""

The real need for Flash is that it is much better than animated GIFs at distracting the user and causing them to notice the advertisement at the top of the page... and in the bottom right corner, and in the left sidebar, and in the top left corner, and in the right sidebar, and the one above it in the right sidebar, and at the bottom, and in the iframe that floats by in the middle of the page.

I just cannot believe that *anyone* (especially an OSNews reader, as OSNews.com has a particular affinity for Flash ads), in this day and age, could ask what Flash is good for.

Sheesh! ;-)
