PC-BSD LinuxHelp reviews PC-BSD, the (100% compatible) variant of FreeBSD aimed at the desktop, and concludes: "All in all, PC-BSD is an OS which has a bright future in the desktop market provided the developers provide more variety of software or at least equivalent to those found in the FreeBSD ports."

PC-BSD install

PC-BSD is really easy to install and start work with. Installer and package manager won't make any problems for people who have ever seen on Windows or Linux. After installation system works just fine (except some issues character sets for non-English translations, but they should be resolved in final version coming quite soon).

The only problem now is with the ammount of PBI packages available. It would be great if DesktopBSD project released stable version of graphical ports manager for all FreeBSD systems - it's really nice thing.
