BSD and Darwin derivatives "DesktopBSD 1.6RC3 for AMD64 is now available for download via BitTorrent and from our mirror sites. It includes several improvements made since the release of 1.6RC3 for i386, including: better performance by disabling SMP on single core/processor computers, fixed installation on disks with special partition names, inclusion of the FreeBSD ports collection on the DVD, and more."

I wish DesktopBSD get more attention and development resources. PC BSD is getting all the hype, but it looks that DesktopBSD approach of staying with FreeBSD ports/packages technically is more sound than alien PBIs. If PC BSD community devoted their attention to creating standard packages instead of PBIs it would make more sense, I think.

All in all, more competition for FreeBSD on desktop will benefit everyone.
