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.

I've used PC-BSD since before 1.0. I have used FBSD since 4.x (~1998) as my main development desktop. It's really a great system with the PBI's It works well. I wish there were more developers to quicken the pace a little but oh well. I installed FBSD/KDE4 a while back and was unimpressed with KDE4. So I went back to 3. As soon as the amd64 versions of PC-BSD are out I'll try that.

Keep up the great work!


PS: I heard this a long time ago and it seems acurate for the people I work with FTMP. "Linux users use Linux because they don't like MS, BSD users use BSD because they like UNIX!"
