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."

"Being able to split a hard-disk into more than four partitions is definitely a feature,"

It would have been even better if Compaq (yes, this is an abomination that MS is not responsible for) hadn't made the braindead design-decision to limit the number primary partitions to 4. Its a completely arbitrary and pointless limitation that does nothing but add unneeded complexity. That's what the previous poster was getting at.
