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."

"...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..."

that made me smile thank you ;) . the purpose for this distro is to be able to be used simply by the average user. what you did takes skill and an above average level of understanding of your system. most people want to just have something work, not have to work at it. I think PC-BSD has succeeded in that area
