PC-BSD "After using PC-BSD several days, I was impressed with how easy it is to use. It's a good desktop OS, and a great way to introduce BSD to new users. The 1.0 release has a few rough edges, but nothing that should scare off prospective users. For the future, I'd like to see something like Synaptic to manage PBI packages and allow users to browse for software without having to visit the PC-BSD Web site, and it would be nice if the site had a little more documentation, but I expect such things will come along in due time as the project matures."

and will be for a long time. I've been testing it since 0.5 and it sure has come a long way but for desktop usage it is still not as i'd like it to be.

It's true that it's base is rock solid, and from that point of view it could be considered mature but it still needs lots of work on gui tools and such.

Not to be considered as a troll, i am one of the most active PC-BSD users.

I'd say PC-BSD 2.0 will rock.
