Possibly it is the best Unix Desktop OS after removing OSX from the equation. for OSX you pay money, for Free-BSD you don't. Linux distros should learn the simplicity of their packaging technology PBI, and try to mimic if they want to be user friendly. Besides, the OS is much more stable than 10 linux latest distros I examined on at least 8 systems (if you ignore RHEL 4.2).
I wish them the best.
