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.

PC-BSD - Idiot-proof install.... in general, good to see some more variety, interesting project - however, I've just installed FreeBSD 5.4 rc3 .....

# pkg_add -r <packagename>

Easy up-to-date binaries via the above - kdebase 3.4.0 Firefox 1.0.3 - no bloat....

All good though - interesting to see how it develops ;)
