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[6]: Nice review

Judging from the bold and the BOLDED CAPS you seem kind of defensive.

Well, I thought it might catch your attention that way ;) Because clearly, you don't understand how PBIs work. Now it is clear that you simply don't want to understand. I gave specific examples in my posts, and yet, you are still at it: trying to convince people that PC-BSD's package management will fail, because they don't use shared libraries - which, as I pointed out numerous times, they actually do.

One thing that we have learned in the Linux community is that you can't be rude and expect to be a hit with new users. Judging from your comments, this seems a lesson that BSD has yet to learn.

This, like so many of your posts, doesn't make any sense. I can't reply with "we, in the BSD community" simply because this is not a sect or something, and I'm not qualified to represent the BSD community as such. It would be a sad day when you could make claims in the name of the linux community without being laughed at ;) Most of the BSD users I personally know are also linux users btw - and so am I (mainly archlinux). Besides, this has nothing to do with linux vs bsd (especially not about the relative wisdom of these communities ;) . Simply I pointed out - using specific examples - that your perception of the PBI system is wrong. You consistently ignored that, and kept repeating the same thing over and over. I consider this trolling. FUD is also an apt term for what you do: you harp about the doom of PC-BSD, while spreading obvious lies about its package management. At first, I gave you the benefit of a doubt that you are simply mistaken, and once you learn how actually PBIs work, you'll stop. Clearly, I was wrong.

Have a nice day.
