Any problems I've had w/ PC-BSD comes from being spoiled on Linux eyecandy, but after tweaking fonts to make Emacs legible and reading Ch.5 of the FreeBSD manual on X Windows to make fonts shine, I feel as close as I can to Linux' roots in unix.

Yes, there's a slight learning curve and no, not everything works as in Linux (flash, e.g.) but I love ports, love the simplicity -- Arch Linux and Frugalware share the same philosophy.

Kudos to the developers on an outstanding job of making FreeBSD accessible to everyone.
