PC-BSD This release marks a milestone for PC-BSD, by moving to the latest FreeBSD 7-Stable and also incorporating the KDE 4.1.1 desktop. Users will immediately notice the improved visual interface that KDE 4.1.1 offers, as well as a large improvement in hardware support and speed from the update to FreeBSD 7-Stable. PC-BSD 7 also offers a large and growing library of self-contained PBI files available for installation, and improvments for other locales on our PBI Directory website. This release also offers new methods of installation, including a DVD, USB and Internet/network install. Note: Here is an interview with the lead developer of PC-BSD.

Each BSD is developed and maintained by its own group - kernal, filesystem, centralized ports, system libraries, instead of getting different parts from different people.

Not so. There's quite a bit of cross-pollination between the different BSD's.

The BSDs are much more command line focused and is not interested in developing anything to be user friendly.

Eh, I dunno about that. In some ways yes, in some ways no. Most developers do use X, ya know.

In BSD you can upgrade to the new release from source, there is no need to erase it and install the new release

I dont see how this is different from Linux.
