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."

Sure, it would have better if the limit wasn't in place. But, unfortunately, there are lots of users out there in the world whose computers are setup that way. And there are many users who might be interested in using PC-BSD (or any of the BSDs) but are unable to because it won't install to an extended partition.
