PC-BSD reminds me Opera. It is to operating systems what Opera is to browsers. It's an excellent piece of software that very few people know and use.

I still don't understand why no one has exported the PC-BSD concept to Linux. There are already all pieces of the puzzle available (Ubuntu/openSUSE, Klik/Autopackage), people would just have to pack everything into an enticing distro. Those who aren't familiar with Synaptic would feel comfortable with such a system.
