PC-BSD "PC-BSD is not a Linux distribution, but rather it could be considered among the first major FreeBSD-based distributions to live outside of the official FreeBSD. Like most distributions, it has implemented certain features in a way that attempts to distinguish it from the competition, and I will focus mostly on these differences. This test drive is intended to give an overview of what PC-BSD is and why one would consider using it."

I gave up with PC-BSD, because they still don't have a release for 6.2, and I found the K menu a bit confusing with their add-ons with 1.3.01. So I just install FreeBSD, populate the ports and standard files, customize the kernel and recompile it and install it, and just compile X 7.2 and KDE from the ports. Yes it takes a long time to do all this, but I get the latest and greatest, and a customized kernel instead of the generic kernel is usually a faster kernel if done correctly.
