I've tried many Linux distro's and just really had a hard time with them all. The base installs are okay, but anytime you want to add software, I had trouble. Either they were source downloads only, and i didn't have the build tools installed or there was some dependancy or missing library problem.
I tried PC-BSD and was immediately sold. I really like it. It works great, and there is a certain polish that it just seems to work the way it is supposed to. CD's and DVD's automount, movie DVD's played nicely. Installing new software using the PBI was the easiest. It is different than MacOS X, but the security and ease reminded me of it.

Here's to future success in 2007 !! Cheers, and good job!
