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."

Do yourself a favor and install FreeBSD proper. You can have the same desktop with FreeBSD+KDE. The pbi system that they're so proud of is not a real option.

1. There are only a handful of packages in pbi format
2. when you run out of pbi's and try to install from ports, you'll be the proud owner of a broken system
