...I've been watching this with interest. I wish I still had a PC to install it on. :/ From everything I've read FreeBSD 6.0 is a huge step forward and it sounds like the 6.0 improvements translate into good performance for this distro. making it a viable desktop.

Maybe I will have to fork out the $$$ and buy a shuttle.
