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."

No, it just requires the user to be able (and wanting) to read instructions

And you know that geeks aside, no one wants to read documentation, so we shouldn't expect computer users will read documentation ever.

PC-BSD does not aim at professional users who want to tweak their system to maximal speed and usability.

You can do that on PC-BSD too. It's basically a FreeBSD system with additional configurations and tools. You can compile your kernel on PC-BSD if you want.
