PC-BSD LinuxHelp has reviewed PC-BSD. "PC-BSD is turning out to be an excellent alternative to other desktop operating systems. After testing and using PC-BSD for some time now, I can't but admire the sheer amount of work that is put into creating, developing and molding an OS for the lay person albeit with a strong slant towards FreeBSD. The fact that PC-BSD is able to accomplish all the tasks expected by an end user - be it using the Internet for communication, listening to music, watching movies or using it for recreation purposes holds it in good stead as a viable desktop operating systems."

Extended partitions ?

I tried to install PC-BSD on a logical partition way back and it almost cost me my OpenSUSE, eComStation and WinXP, if it hadn't been for DfSee.

The problem back then was that the PC-BSD installer was unable to handle extended partitions properly (It just made them all into one big happy primary partition)

Has that issue been solved, will PC-BSD today handle extended partitions the right way ?
