BSD and Darwin derivatives Hot on the heels of the release of FreeBSD 9, it's the ninth version of its desktop-oriented offspring to jump into the spotlight. "Based upon FreeBSD 9.0-RELEASE, this is the first release of PC-BSD which offers users a variety of desktop environments to choose from, such as KDE, GNOME, XFCE, LXDE and more! Also available are pre-built VirtualBox and VMware images with integrated guest tools for rapid virtual system deployment, and native support for installing directly to OS X BootCamp partitions."

VM images are an excellent to do that. At this occassion, I may also point to VirtualBSD: http://www.virtualbsd.info/ - It hasn't arrived at the v9 branch yet, but anyway, if you want to go from 8.1 to 9.0 with your OS and applications, it's just a few (well documented) keystrokes away.

Thanks for adding VirtualBSD to the list! As a matter of fact we're just putting the final touches to VirtualBSD 9.0 and, barring last minute disasters, everything should be ready in day or two -- stay tuned or, better yet, follow @VirtualBSD on Twitter! ;-)
