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."

"""(however, I'm thinking decisions like this are often made by management and not the Engineers).

The management is made of engineers in case you don't know. Ever heard of Sergey and Larry?

At many times it hasn't worked or has not been available

Don't blame Adobe for you not being able to configure Flash on your Linux box. Damn, you only have to copy two files (flashplayer.xpt, into the .mozilla subdirectory and to restart Firefox.

You're trying to justify your statement with unrelated arguments. Of course it doesn't make sense to use Flash for a troubleshooting section of a web site. This is not the point. The point is that Flash is the best technology to use nowadays for online video if you want to reach the greatest number of people, but you have failed to proove the contrary, and you have also failed to give us an alternative. Should YouTube use Theora Vorbis? LOL (unless they only want to target Linux users)"""

Who are you talking to? You start out replying to my statements... and then you go off responding to someone else's posts as if they were mine?
