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.

@molnarcs: Understood. I have had too many broken ports errors and waking up many a mornings and finding an error when I had asked it to compile the source. After a while I just want it to work. I did not care if it was optimized for my system or not ;)

@jack: I am not sure one can consider this a fork. They are not messing around with the FreeBSD OS or the core utilities. Just adding more package mgmt and a KDE centric 'distribution'.
