PC-BSD PC-BSD, the desktop-oriented FreeBSD variant, has released version 7.1, dubbed Galileo. 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.

Its awesome to see that there is a desktop distribution based on FreeBSD but it would be great to see a point where FreeBSD has access to pretty much internet necessities like a native Flash plugin - Maybe in the future Gnash will be mature.

Just as an unrelated issue; there is a move to get LLVM with the CLANG to the point of being able to compile FreeBSD; it'll be interesting to see how FreeBSD will benefit from the huge amount of work Apple is contributing to LLVM given that LLVM might result in higher performance from the new approaches to compiler technology.
