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.

As well as in the Linux world, in the BSD world there are those who run servers for long time production where you cannot afford to toy around with sub-alpha releases of anything someone might be interested in.

Amen to that.

Instead, you pay attention to security updates of the OS and your applications and don't touch anything else.

Even then, you have to be careful with updates and patches in production.

Germans are scared when they see an error message in KDE, especially when it's in English.

I speak a little Swiss [Deutch] so I can imagine some of the phrases.
