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."

For those who dislike PC-BSD because of disagreeing with the PBI technology, there is DesktopBSD.

DesktopBSD uses ports through a GUI frontend and has an easy installer as well.

Why is the PBI system not an option Kernelpanic? Have you even tested is to see what it does/can do?

Just because you dislike it, doesn't mean it can't be a great idea (although, i'd agree, it has a lot to rogress).
