Yes the desktop is the same BUT the base isn't. They also do things their own way. With PC-BSD you install programs like you do in Windows. The good thing is, you can download the setup (PBI) file from ANY web location and then save it anywhere on your disk and install it from that location. With other systems such as Synaptic, what would happen if the "requested" server is down and you want the file right now? Ok ok, I know you have different servers but this is just an example. It also puts files all over the place because that's how normally is....With PBI, you have all your programs in one location called "Program Files"....ooops, I mean "Programs".
