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.

I'll get alot of flack for saying this, but I don't see many users clamoring for a "user friendly", whatever that means, BSD flavoured OS (I thought Mac OS-X filled that niche).

BSD is better suited for the DYI crowd, as opposed to the spoonfed crowd that usually flocks towards the GNU/Linux OS.

This is getting silly, just how many more BSD forks we'll we see in the upcoming year?
