I am telling you, this OS is the best thing I have ever seen after Windows and Mac OS X. No Linux distro is even close to PC-BSD! The installation of new programs is piece of cake, point and click! No dependency hell, it works, creates shortcuts for you just like in Windows. Hardware detection is awesome. The fonts are also greatly improved with the latest release RC2.

Especially if you get the Windows fonts and turn off anti-aliasing, the fonts look as good as in Windows literally. This does not happen in Linux UNLESS you start messing up with config files and start re-compiling free type config files.
