I've always been disappointed by PC-BSD because it doesn't run natively on my hardware. It can't handle mixed controllers (SATA and PATA) and it didn't work with my ide->sata conversion switch either.

I had much better luck running it under a virtual machine (Oracle/Sun Virtualbox), where it works fine.

I have to say, though, for the desktop user, I'm not sure I see any compelling reason to run PC-BSD. Can anyone here tell me if I'm missing something? thanks.
