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."

64 bit PCBSD

PCBSD is progressing fine it seems. I tried a version back in the 0.6 days (which was quite recently actually). My feeling then was that the .pbi's wasn't working 100% but it seems they've fixed that matter.

I'd be delighted to see DesktopBSD and PCBSD to join forces just like many others here. On the other hand, 2 R&D groups can take different routes and share the best with eachother, as BSDs has always done.

Now to the 100 million dollar question. When is PCBSD gonna offer 64bit installations (AMD64 specifically in my interest)?

If I'm gonna switch from Windoze for my everyday working machine, it's gonna be PCBSD or Haiku (though the latter will force me to wait a while longer it seems).

Keep up the good job.
