In case you don't know, PC-BSD is a FreeBSD distribution with lots of customisations focussed on the desktop user. Its most defining features is the Push Button Installer, a self-contained package format with handy installers/uninstallers. PC-BSD 7.1 comes loaded with changes and updates.

PC-BSD has succeeded where so few althernative desktop OS's have failed. Any Windows user can use PC-BSD without much of a learning curve. installing software is easy, the aplications work as you would expect them too, honestly its just a great OS all around. Please keep up the good work guys, truely amazing stuff.

also (if you check the front page) it is not based on FreeBSD 7.1 STABLE but 7.2 (which in turn is based on 7.1 if you want to really get into it, but still.)
