I think PC-BSD 1.5 has the stability and features that PC-BSD 1.0 should have had.

I'll have a look at it soon. In regards of proper internationalization, PC-BSD has had many chances to improve. :-)

What I like most: The announced NEW sound detection program! Uses XML backend to identify and load modules, and of course Xorg 7.3.

PC-BSD is great for "BSD illiterate" users who want a preconfigured system built upon KDE, along with the easy PBIs. It's an excellent point to start when you don't have the time to taylor a FreeBSD based system by yourself, and when you're comfortable with the "mainstream software" that's already included. Along with PC-BSD's stuff, you can follow most of the "old fashioned ways" of doing things on BSD OSes.

Great work, PC-BSD team!
