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.

Linspire is Linux... many of us prefer not to use Linux because of it's chaoitic nature.

Choice is good, and this is the first really friendly BSD out there as far as I can tell.

Besides, FreeBSD has been around for what is it now 15 years? and is likely to stay.

Linspire has been around??? Ahh thought so... I rest my case.
