I have nothing but good things to say about PC-BSD. This is a distro that really works for me and is simple to use for anyone, even new crossovers to KDE. Great job all around.
Not to nitpick but PC-BSD is not a "distribution" per se, but rather an interpretation of FreeBSD. "
Sorry to nitpick, but you are wrong.
PC-BSD is a distribution of FreeBSD. They take FreeBSD, they modify some stuff, they add some stuff, they remove some stuff, they add a nice KDE GUI wrapper over it all, and add their PBI stuff.
The FreeBSD community at large calls PC-BSD a distribution of FBSD.
