PC-BSD PC-BSD is a new FreeBSD 5.3 distribution, with a graphical installer and KDE 3.4 as its desktop. A new beta version was just released, and though I can't say I have much experience with FreeBSD, or any *BSD for that matter, I was curious enough to try it. And I'm glad I did. From a desktop user's point of view, completely oblivious to the many virtues and sound foundation of all things BSD, all I really ever wanted was an OS that is solid, easy to install and, well ... fun to work with.

Well, finally a binary package management system for BSD. I am downloading as I type this. The new pacakage manager looks promising ;) Great work guys. Once more people start working on this soon many more packages (gnome, etc.) will be supported.
