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.

MacOS X may fill this niche for PPC ,but what about the X86 platform?what fills the niche there WinXP?

Looking bluntly at the sheer marketshare figures XP.But the role MacOSX has in ppc land is reality still vacant for x86(_64).
