PC-BSD Two reviews of PC-BSD 1.4. The first one concludes: " If you are a new user, there is everything here for you; equally so if you are an experienced techie you can get into the FreeBSD ports tree and compile to your hearts content. Something for everyone here, no matter their level of knowledge or expertise." The second one: "PC-BSD is an extremely user friendly and secure BSD, based on the rock solid FreeBSD 6.2 stable core, with a easy to use package management system, a friendly installation GUI and great hardware recognition. It is easy enough for average users and interesting enough for advanced users."

No, because if someone has compiled it from hand to work with a particular version of Ubuntu then ether they know the dependencies are in the Ubuntu repositories or will let you know to add their repository to get the dependencies you need.


Bravo !

So you see, it is beginning to become more complicated than simply "get and click on a .deb" ;-)

For you first idea, I have to manually collect several different .deb, be sure they do not conflict with older or newer versions of the ones already installed on my system, etc.

For your second idea, I have to update my source.list file in order to install only one software... hey, by the way, it conflicts with what you said as now you tell us to use a network repository and apt :-)
